The Peekskill Coffee House has a monthly open mic run by the ineffable Andy Rice. It is a load of fun and I encourage all you musicians and music lovers to stop by and take in a little local musical color. This month’s open mic happens on August 16th from 7-9pm. See you there!
Fred Gillen, Jr., is a regular at the Coffee House; bookmark his live show schedule for upcoming dates. For all shows, a $5-$10 donation is suggested, but, as he says, “do your best.” Currently on the list:
Friday, August 29, 7 p.m.
Friday, September 26, 7 p.m.
Friday, October 31, 7 p.m.
Friday, November 28, 7 p.m.
Even sooner, he’s appearing at Peekskill’s Drum Hill Senior Living Community on Monday, August 11, at 7 p.m. And on Saturday, August 30, he’ll play the Peekskill Block Party—that’s at 7 p.m. on Division between Central and Main.
In the meantime, check out more of Gillen’s songs from his most recent Coffee House gig.
There are events all day and into the night at the main stage on Central Avenue, the gorgeously renovated Paramount Hudson Valley theater, the bountiful Birdsall House (where The Flynns are playing at 1 pm in the beer garden), and, of course, the coffee house.
Free shuttle buses from the train station! You’re gonna kick yourself if you miss it, and you’ll kick up your heels if you come. Download the official flyer for all the info.
Here are today’s Central Avenue and Paramount lineups (all free!), from the Paramount website:
