Free Live Recording w/Cowmuddy at The Fire Oct. 17

Free Live Recording w/Cowmuddy at The Fire Oct. 17

You may or may not know it, but Cowmuddy (a.k.a. Michael McShane) is a bit of a local legend on the singer-songwriter scene. The eccentric, environmentally conscious McShane probably would be an interesting subject for a documentary. I imagine him becoming one of those artists who’d gain more popularity and resurgence after its release and he had fallen off the radar like an Anton Newcombe or Daniel Johnston. You know that there must be something special there for him to attract help from a rotating cast of talented hometown musicians that have included Jonas Osterle (formerly of The Teeth, Flashy Python, Purples, Paper Masques) Amos Lee, “Steady” Freddie Berman (Amos Lee), Jaron Olevsky (Amos Lee), Todd Erk (Birdie Busch, Hoots & Hellmouth) and many, many more. He’ll be recording a live performance tonight at his second home, The Fire, for a new CD, and it’s FREE. Also on the bill are The Deli favorites, Levee Drivers, with their slow-burning, bluesy country rock. I know. But the Phillies game! Hopefully they’ll have it on like every music venue with a TV should these days. (Come on KFN - breakdown and play the games. It’d just make everyone happier. Hehe…is it really necessary to run that Bad Brains video again? :o) The Fire, 412 W. Girard Ave., 9pm, FREE, 21+ - H.M. Kauffman
