Free Prize Inside

Saturday, April 18th, 2015

On National Record Store Day this year, we remember a record that was once the free prize inside a Mad Magazine. The material was called flexi-dics (not vinyl) but it still played on a turntable at 33 1/3.

Gustav Hoffman brings the beat during a CD release party for Slow Train at Empire last night.

Gustav Hoffman (bass) took the beat down a notch during the CD release party for Slow Train at Empire Brewing Company last night.  In the background is Byron Cage on drums (and Ustream controls).

We don’t know where the after party was for Syracuse Fashion Week last night, but maybe it should have been held at the Empire Brewing Company. We followed the sound of  music in Armory Square, and it lead us to the Slow Train CD release show.

A packed house included guest musicians and some familiar faces. We look forward to seeing them again soon.  Slow Train will travel to Rochester for their next show.

Thanks to Byron Cage for the invite.

Fashion Shows are a multi-dimensional experience and DJ V did a great job considering it was his first fashion show gig.

Jeff Houston

Jeff Houston on stage at Juneteenth.

The local music scene is like a fraternity: so many good folks jamming, sharing and looking out for one another.

We were sad to hear about Jeff Houston’s passing.  We caught him many times around Syracuse, but most recently at the Community Folk Art Center’s Women in Music series.

A tribute will take place at Dolce Vita where Houston usually played on Wednesday nights.
