Today and Tonight: The Brooklyn Country Music Festival at The Bell House, The Demolition String Band at Skinny Dennis or Bryan Dunn at Rockwood Stage 2

Choices Large

The choice sign is up again and that means there are a lot of choices out there.  They include music in the afternoon as well as during the evening.

Over in Gowanus at The Bell House, The 10th Brooklyn Country Music Festival continues.  Things get going early, at 3pm today.  Here’s the line up:

The CasHank Hootenanny Jamboree (Frontier Room) – 3pm
Bob Jones and Jon Sholle – 5pm
Terry Radigan – 6pm
Li’l Mo and The Monicats – 7pm
Zephaniah and the 18 Wheelers – 8pm
Lindy Loo and Her Lucky Fellers (Frontier Room) – 8:30pm
The Western Caravan featuring Thirsty Dave – 9pm
The Defibulators – 10pm
Sean Kershaw and the New Jack Ramblers (Frontier Room) – 11:30pm

The music also starts in the afternoon, 4pm to be exact, and run through to 7pm at Skinny Dennis, the best Texas honky tonk in Brooklyn. When any band has string band in its name, you expect old-timey country.  Well, you are just not going to get that from The Demolition String Band.  There’s twang and alt country, but the DSB rocks hard as well.  The band is led by front woman Elena Skye and ace guitarist Boo Reiners.  Whatever they are playing, your ears will definitely be pleased.

Finally, at 9pm tonight, Bryan Dunn will bring his folk rock and Americana to The Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2.  Bryan’s songs run the gamut from literate to humorous to poignant and frequently can be described as literature with a guitar.  You can also sing along to many of them.  Bryan will be playing solo tonight, but will be joined by Andi Rae Healy for a few songs as well.
