Amy’s Concert Notes 4/12/-4/18/06

Hi, all-

Nothing. Green. Yellow. Houdini daffodils.

On that note, here is this week's listing:

Wes Houston Presents: every Wednesday at 8:30PM on Woodbury Cablevision Channel 20 and Queens Channel 34 

Friday, April 14th at 8PM: MARK ERELLI at the University Cafe. Mark was just fabulous at FMSH a few years back, and doesn't often come around these parts much. I hear he's got a new album out, too. Cool! This is a rare Friday night concert  for this series. The eminent Charlie Backfish hosts. $20/ or $15/ students. Call  631 632-6027 or for info and reservations.

Saturday, April 15th at 8PM: GLEN ROETHEL and WALTER SARGENT at The Hard Luck Cafe. Two of the most original songwriters that Long Island has produced: Glen is a wonderful, positive and upbeat performer who truly does appeal to one's higher angels, and Walter defies neat categorization with his quirky and evocative left turns. These two very nicely disprove the notion that there isn't much that's interesting on the local scene. A show not to be missed. The open mic starts at 8PM. The concert will be held at the usual FMSH spot, the Congregational Church of Huntington, 30 Washington Dr, Centerport (wheelchair accessible). $8 at the door. or 631 661-1278

Sunday, April 16th at 10AM: LITTLE TOBY WALKER will be Charlie Backfish's in-studio guest on Sunday Street on WUSB 90.1FM
