Age of Reason and The Peacock Flounders at Cafe 9
May 22nd at Cafe 9, you can catch three long-running local bands that have been doing there thing since before most of you were born. It's going to be a night of solid old-school rock; a total blast from the past.
The show is a CD release party for Age of Reason, which features Ed Leonard, who's been running Beatnik 2000, a local open mic at Cafe 9 for many years every Monday night. Also in the band is Dave Davino, who runs the local Studio 23. They'll be releasing their newest CD "Vox Humana" which I just heard a sample of on Rob DeRosa's Homegrown radio show yesterday (which I hope everyone else was listening to...)
The Peacock Flounders will also be playing, which features Ron Sutfin and Kerry Miller, both of them long-time rockers from back in the days of New Haven club Ron's Place in the late 70s. Their album "Hello Beautiful" was released on Independisc a couple of years ago to great reviews and a lot of acclaim. Sutfin is probably the busiest musician in CT, in addition to playing or having played in a ton of bands, he also runs the eponymous Sutfin Studios. Just check out the website and you'll see the long list of things he's been involved in.
Also on the bill are Shrinking Violets, who feature members of The Who Whos, Peacock Flounders, and Rope.
