Blues at the Parkview

Crowd at ParkviewThe Parkview was jammed tonight. More people than for the Ohio State bowl game earlier this month, and more than the inauguration.

It was a fundraiser concert to help send Kristine Jackson and Austin "Walking Cane" Charangat to Memphis for the International Blues Challenge. For ten bucks we got a CD, and added another five to enter the 50/50 raffle (didn't win, though).

The music was good—favorites from the KJ and Austin songbooks—and it was non-stop from 9:45 to 12:15. Things were winding down when we left at 12:30.

I re-introduced myself to Mike of Mike's Barn, yet another of NE Ohio's best-kept secrets. The Barn is literally a barn where Mike stage weekly blues concerts every summer. Informal, low-key, BYOB and great music. This summer Tom Waits will be there in August. Hope to get to that one.
