Dave Keyes with Popa Chubby in Beverly
Good friend Dave has been playing great music his whole life, but I don't get much of a chance to see him. So when I heard he was playing at 9 Allis in Beverly on 5/19 with Popa Chubby, I was very psyched. His tracks with Popa Chubby are excellent.
W&L were able to get there also, though delayed by life and traffic. This is one of the worst times of year for traffic around Boston and getting North on 128 can be difficult. 9 Allis is a nice, small room and Dave and Popa were joined by a bassist and drummer. They played two great sets of electric blues with some great contributions from all the guys.
Dave came by the table when he could, and we had a nice chat with him at the merch table afterwards, then back into the night and home to our mostly demoed house.
