Free Show: Nicki Bluhm Live at Lagunitas

Not many people know but the fine folks over at Lagunitas have built a killer outdoor venue nestled next to their Beer Sanctuary called the Laguminiamphitheaterette. Yes, that just rolls off the tongue. They’re doing a series of FREE(!) shows through the summer with some serious names lined up. Bluegrass legend Peter Rowan kick things off last Monday. This Monday Nicki Bluhm and The Gramblers are playing with Petaluma‘s favorite farm band, Arann Harris and The Farm Dogs. The place only holds a few hundred people, so you don’t wanna sleep on this.

For FREE tickets, get to the Lagunitas Schwag Shop first thing Wednesday before all the tickets are gone.

Rock Art: Ricky Watts Poster for Sean Hayes / Arann Harris

This drawing was inspired by musician Arann Harris of The Green String Farm Band. He came up with the concept and I brought the idea to life. It is a futuristic interpretation of a growth hormone experiment gone bad on the downtown streets (of my hometown) of Petaluma, California, once known as the “Chicken Capital of the World“.”

Limited run of 50 prints. More info / purchase »
