JOHN PIPER-THERE IS NO PARTIALITY WITH GOD PART TWO

Though I agree with the main thrust of this sermon, Piper neglects to mention cases such as that of the Davis Indians, to whom God and His principles were revealed before missionaries reached that tribe with the Gospel.

LA TRASH POP TRIO THE CIGARETTE BUMS ARE COMING TO YOUR CITY! (FOR FANS OF THE BLACK LIPS & THE STOOGES)


"a Dylan-meets-Daniel Johnston meets-Replacements-meets-Beefheart smash-up that's a real pleasure to watch. The Bums play repetitious, folksy stanzas with a snot-nosed, garage-band delivery, and they throw in an occasional, speedy jazz-intoned riff for flare."

 -LA Weekly

 

Latchkey garage punks from all over CA gather for the monster they call the Cigarette Bums. Started by Steven Carrera in late 2009, the band began with various members that recorded two 7"s, a few EPs and one album entitled HOLY SMOKES. The band currently features drummer Austin Ash, guitarist/background vocalist Jaime Rosas, and is often guested by various musicians from the Los Angeles community.

 

 The band recently finished recording their follow up LP Goofs on the Loose at Big Bad Sound, a converted house studio located in the hills of Silverlake. The album includes unique tracks such as "Strange" in which the band was accompanied by 14 augmented players to create a psych jam that included instruments such as the sitar, organ, moog, African drums, as well a huge chorus. With influences ranging from The Stooges to The Black Lips the band is gearing up to showcase their brand of energized 60's garage punk and power pop to the U, S, of A on their first national tour.

Well.... 
They may be    rockin’ in Boston or (even) way    down in New Orleans....
Butthis Sunday, May  17th....
The ‘Amazing Jam’ is where    it’s at. And that’s where you should be too!   
Take a break from the black flies in  the garden and head on down to....
The Black Dog, 227 West Front St. in Stirling.   
We start up at 2 pm, run until    5....
Looking forward to see you  there.
*Pssst! And    don’t forget to check the Facebook page ‘BV Amazing Music’ for postings    about more music and events in this area. There’s something happening    here....

This Sunday afternoon  at The Black  Dog in Stirling. We’ll be playing music there for about 3 hours. Welcomed by both staff and the patrons in the lounge and  restaurant, our music is appreciated. 
Once a month on Sunday afternoons. This Sunday afternoon (May  17th). Time is from 2 pm until 5.
The format is a ‘song circle’ with  the lead changing from person to person among the group. Everyone has the option  to offer a tune when their turn comes around, or pass to their neighbour if  they’d rather. Depending on the music, the mood, choice of instruments, etc.  some will choose to support whoever is leading a song, others may prefer to sit out and listen.   DSCF1663
We invite you to come out and join us, making music with old friends;  for sure, there’ll be some new faces too.

Remember....
“Bring your instruments, your voices and your music. It’s  all unplugged  and it’s all good! Guitar, bass,  harmonica, banjo,  mandolin, ukulele,  fiddle, accordion,  flute, celtic harp – the list goes  on.
“There may be only 4 or 5 of us or maybe a whole room full of  musicians. A place for ‘first-timers’ and experienced  players alike. A  good bunch of people playing all kinds of music together.  People in their teens all the way through  proto-geezers. Maybe even an DSCF1647sincipient-geriat or two....
“The blues does not rule. Any acoustic music from punk to polka!”

Hope to see you Sunday afternoon in  Stirling.

SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE IN MADOC! (THIS SATURDAY APRIL 25TH)

Hi all,
Here’s a poster for our concert and open stage venue this Saturday evening,  April 25th, at Arts Centre Hastings in Madoc. Please feel free to print it,  share it and otherwise indulge yourselves. And please, don’t neglect to come out  and join us for the show!
This evening performance will be the conclusion of our ‘Sound Systems 101’  workshop (running at Arts Centre Hastings from 1 pm on Saturday). Doors open for  the evening show at 7:30 pm; music starts at 8. The first part of the program  will be an ‘open stage’. Some, but not all of the (12 minute) stage slots will  be filled by our workshop participants. I expect there will be space for other  performers if they come out and sign-up early.
Sound and technical production for the evening will be run by our workshop  participants. Coffee and good things will be available in-house from Madoc’s  fabulous Hidden Goldmine Bakery.
Concert admission is free. Pay-what-you-can donations will be welcomed to  ‘Blue Skies In the Community’, the outreach program of Blue Skies Music Festival  which has been providing assistance and support to music and the arts for many  years across east-central Ontario.
So bring your friends and come out to join us for another exciting evening  of excellent music. Looking forward to see you there.
James
