Head to the Nine

If you saw Phil Beach's Making a Mix in last Friday's Weekend, then you know this guy has some good taste, from the Old 97's to Uncle Tupelo, from the Gin Blossoms to R.E.M.

Thinking about those groups, it should be obvious that Beach's band, Veloray, plays alt country. Good alt country. I saw Veloray open for Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers (the best live band in America) sometime during the summer of 2005, and let's just say Veloray held its own. It was a great show at a great venue (the criminally under-used Red Door in Watertown).
Tonight is your chance to see Veloray around here. The band plays Cafe Nine with Eric Royer. See for yourself what a good local alt-country band sounds like.
