Saturdays are always so good to me because there’s so little on my schedule. Because I work nightshift on Fridays, I sleep til the crack of noon and wake up just in time for food and college football. I get to garden and get lost in books. I have all afternoon to attend to any chores or errands, and Saturday nights I get to see some more music.
Although I went to the shows by myself, there are always familiar faces at the bar. I was soon surrounded by plenty of people I knew and made some new future friends. I began the busy night at Goodfellas Bar and Grille with a musical stampede courtesy of Return of the Horse. Although the videos I took were too dark to detect and define any of them, their set was swift and strong and they had merchandise for sell. The next shows on their schedule are Saturday October 27th at the Lewis Wetzel Center in New Martinsville, WV, Saturday November 3rd at River City Ale Works in Wheeling, WV, and Saturday November 10th at the Altar Bar in Pittsburgh.
From there I found myself at Down on Main Street enjoying a little lighter, more mellow musical group: The Muddle. The Muddle – Cathy Mowder – Rhythm Guitar / Vocals, Kevin Schlick – Lead Guitar – / Vocals, London Stadler – Bass / Vocals, and Matt Uhlly – Drums is an acoustic rock group from Martins Ferry, Ohio. I only got to stay for two songs of their set before it was time for another nightshift, but The Muddle made a memorable impression. I plan on seeing much more of them as they schedule more shows.
I couldn’t stay for KR-3 but will proudly promote them with shows I’ve seen in the past. You can catch KR-3 as their upcoming schedule suggests: Saturday October 6th at St. Clairsville Central Park, Saturday October 27th at the Lewis Wetzel Center in New Martinsville, WV, and Saturday November 3rd at River City Ale Works in Wheeling, WV. I always look forward to what I put in my planner for Saturdays. It’s always great bands that I get to cross off my calendar. Until next Saturday – OglebayFest at Oglebay Park – fill up your time with local talent and keep your concert calendars full!
