The Allman Brothers Band's 1971 live recording, "At Fillmore East," is the next selection for the Gusto Vinyl Happy Hour series at 7 p.m. Monday, July 23 in the Sportsmen's Tavern.
The June version of the event, featuring Miles Davis' "Kind of Blue," was held before a capacity crowd. Those wishing to attend July 23 are encouraged to arrive early, as entry is not guaranteed. There is no presale available.
Buffalo News Music Critic Jeff Miers and 97 Rock DJ Anita West co-host each event of the monthly series, held on select Mondays throughout the summer.
Each month, Miers and West select a classic album from one the great forms of American music, spin portions of it on vinyl live in the club and open the floor to questions. The evening is capped by a live performance from a hand-picked selection of Buffalo's finest musicians, who perform their own interpretations of selections from that month's album.
On July 23, the band consisting of Todd Eberwine (guitar), Drew Azzinaro (guitar), Sean McNamara (guitar/vocals), Greg Leech (keyboard), Ryan Nogle (drums) and Jeff Miers (bass) will perform some "At Fillmore East" classics.
No advance purchase is necessary, but again, early arrival is encouraged. There is a $7 cover at the door.
