I can't help but do a bit of self promotion, since my band Anne Castellano & the Smoke is playing in Norwich on Thursday night. It's our first show at the Strange Brew Pub, a venue that is quickly becoming a favorite of local music lovers. Also on the bill will be The Saturday Giant, from Columbus, Ohio. The Saturday Giant is Philip Cogley, a one man experimental indie band who is on tour across the U.S. for the next two months. He uses no prerecorded samples, with layers of drums, guitars, bass, keyboards, and vocals being created in real time at his shows. The Saturday Giant has recorded three EPs, with the most recent, When Death Comes, released in 2012. My band plays first, beginning at about 9:30 or 10 pm, and we'll be doing a few new songs that we think you are going to like. Strange Brew serves food, and they even have Southern Tier Pumking on tap, if you need any further convincing. The last band I saw there couldn't stop raving about the wings (and carnivorous friends of mine have agreed). It's Ladies' Night, so women get in free, and they also get half priced drinks from 7 to 10 pm. For the guys, it's $5 admission.
