Good Morning, Music Lovers! We have a great day lined up with our ‘Water, Water Everywhere’ EP (appropriately, we are on our second day of gloomy weather here) and a return to Tom Petty Month!
Here’s today’s anything-but-gloomy lineup:
8:00 a.m. Water, Water Everywhere: Various Artists
We like facts here in The Mermaid Lounge, even though we know our conservative counterparts have absolutely no use for facts. The fact is, however, that the earth is comprised of 71% water and today we pay it musical homage with Paul McCartney, Deep Purple, Joe Cocker Simon & Garfunkel, Bruce Springsteen, Jackson Browne, Otis Redding, Neil Young, Elton John, The Doobie Brothers, Valerie Carter, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Al Green, Alison Krauss & Union Station, Loggins & Messina, Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band, Linda Ronstadt, Spirit, The Grass Roots, The Beach Boys, Lindisfarne, Van Morrison, Bonnie Raitt, Carole King, Steely Dan, Ton Rush, Johnny Rivers, The Beatles, America, Donovan and more!
7:00 p.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live at Piazza Napoleone, Lucca, Italy, June 29, 2012
Without a doubt, one of our favorite Heartbreakers’ concerts ever right here, live from the Piazza Napoleone in Lucca, in my ancestral homeland, now fully engulfed in fascism. So, don’t say it can’t happen here. I know I digress and I have a “no politics” policy, but I fear that people need a warning shot about what’s going on around the world and that the U.S. is in real crisis right now.
Here’s the part where I tell you that you will be treated to a boatload of wide Open Stream courtesy of The Music Mermaid throughout the afternoon. We are free to all 24/7. No lie. No surprises. Come on in!
