Reservoir Music Notes - Billy Joe Shaver at B Side Ballroom, CBGB Festival, Live Music Picks
October 17, 2013

Well, I was right! I loved the Billy Joe Shaver show at B Side Ballroom in Oneonta, and I love the B Side Ballroom! What a cool venue! The owners, Wayne and Rebecca, are lovely, as is Billy Joe Shaver! I’m gonna tell you a story. I met Billy Joe once in Austin. When he told me he was glad to meet me, I really believed it, because he said it like he really meant it! I was impressed with his vibe, too. He was glowing with something, not sure what. Love, maybe. After the show at B Side, I went over to say hello. Billy Joe immediately greeted me warmly and asked how I’ve been. He remembered me from a 15 minute meeting, once, ten years ago! See what I mean? The man is an amazing character, who’s LIVED! He told stories about his son dying, about shooting a guy at a bar in Texas, about Willie Nelson, music, you name it! Billy Joe Shaver is a wellspring of stories and music! I guess that’s what happens once you’ve been to Georgia on a fast train!

He brought his band with him, which was a pleasant surprise, and they rocked! Great playing, guys! Former Georgia Satellite Keith Christopher was there, and sat in on guitar, and I spotted some Horseshoe Lounge Playboys in the crowd, as well as my buddy John Madeo, who hosts The Little Delaware Jamboree on WIOX, 91.3 FM on Monday nights, and on whose show I am a frequent guest. Also on the web at www.wioxradio.org.

So, it was a fun night rockin’ out with Billy Joe, and I hope to return to the B Side frequently. Please support this place if you can. It’s awesome, and we need it to keep on doing what it’s doing for live music in Oneonta!

This week in the city, the second annual CBGB Music and Film Festival takes over the town from Tuesday through Sunday, with over 500 bands at almost 200 venues all across Manhattan and Brooklyn, and over 200 speakers and films, for a total of over 700 live events, culminating in a free concert in Times Square (see below) with My Morning Jacket, The Wallflowers, Grizzly Bear, and more bands and DJ’s! More info at www.cbgb.com!

Now for this week’s live music picks!

That’s it for another one! See you next week!
