TIPSY?!
Written By: Brenda Golden
TIPSY?! Well, folks, I’m a day late for our weekly ‘chat’ and still feeling some writer’s block.  Is it the cooler weather?  Or just laziness; can’t say.  But I have a lot to tell you of my fun week so I’m going to settle in and hope I don’t get the interruptions and distractions of yesterday.  I’ll begin by telling you that I ran into our dear BJ’s friends Billy & Maddy Carder at Coastal Smokehouse yesterday and I’m happy to report that their band, Teenage Rust, will be playing at M.R. Ducks on Sunday, October 9th, at 2 pm.  Billy quipped, “we’ve been trying to get in there for 35 years!”  So, finally, a party on the dock; let’s pray for good weather.I was at Coastal Smokehouse, on Rt. 50 in West OC, for their first night of live music to kick off their fall schedule of fun happenings.  First up was Jack Worthington & T Lutz.  Good to see Tom on the mend and playing again.  And it was so good to hear Jack singing and playing guitar on lots of our favorite music.  The patio doors were ...

IT'S BIKE WEEK!
Written By: Brenda Golden
IT'S BIKE WEEK! It’s another Bike Week in beautiful Ocean City and the music is amped up all over town for our visitors.  I must confess, my objective is to avoid the big crowds; in younger days I would have been right in the thick of it with so much cool music at the Inlet and in places like Wild Bill’s.  But, at this stage of the game, I’m content to relinquish my space to others.  Now that’s not to say I’m not still getting out to enjoy live music, because I most certainly am.  Last weekend was a blast with a couple of high-powered rock groups that knocked my socks off (silly saying as you’ve never seen me in socks).  Friday night I ventured onto the bayside deck at The Angler for the inaugural performance at that venue of 33 RPM.  All their local fans and many, many others turned out to hear them and, I must say, I’ve never heard the dock rock like that evening.  Mike Beavan on drums and lead vocals is like the Tazmanian Devil in his wild and enthusiastic delivery of every song.  I was quite surpr...

LOVIN' SECOND SEASON!
Written By: Brenda Golden
LOVIN' SECOND SEASON! Hi, all.  Have you noticed?  Traffic is gone!  Yes, we have entered the wonderful second season in Ocean City when special events and certain times of the day may look like summer, but otherwise the streets are empty.  How refreshing!  Especially since our outdoor venues are still open and going strong.  Yay!  My favorite is Coconuts Beach Bar & Grill that's just a quick jaunt over the dunes to the ocean.  What a beautiful place this is to listen to live music and see all your friends who may have stayed away during the really busy and crowded days.  This was the case last Sunday when the Lauren Glick Band played, who we all love, love, love!  You will see in Fun Fotos how many of us locals were on hand and plan to be again when she returns on Sunday, September 18th.  I’ve been excited to keep you abreast of the airplay that Lauren’s new album LUSH has been getting in markets far and wide; and the number of publications in which she has been featured.  What an exciting time for Lau...
