Blood Manor Opening Press Party 9/22

Blood Manor Opening Press Party 9/22

My most favorite time of year sees my birthday (Oct 30th for those of readying your present buying) stealing candy from my niece and nephew when they aren’t looking, autumnal scents in the air and Pumpkin Spiced lattes from just about any coffee establishment I care to enter This time of year also sees the venerable Blood Manor opening its doors once again (from Oct 2nd to Nov 7th.) at their 2nd floor office space.

Listening Party/Record Release For John Lodge’s 10,000 Light Yeas Ago @ Joe’s Pub 4/14/2015

Listening Party/Record Release For John Lodge’s 10,000 Light Yeas Ago @ Joe’s Pub 4/14/2015

First of all, Joe’s Pup is a stellar place to attend a concert or a small intimate Q&A/listening party, which this was. Lodge’s new album 10,000 Light Years Ago (his first solo album in 38 years!) is a lush 8-song achievement. It features some signature Moody Blue-isms (as well as Lodge bringing back two old Moody’s to play on the stand-out tune “Simply Magic” a song about his grandson) as well as country-influenced numbers, wrenching love ballads and some fiddle-stomping fun. All around this is a collection of songs that Lodge assured us are about his life, but not so much a looking backward as looking into the future.
