Double Feature Weekend!
Hey y’all! The Rivergods return for a double-shot of summer fun this weekend. First off, Friday 7/22, we’ll be playing the Blue Collar Happy Hour at Burke’s Tavern in Niantic, one of our favorite local watering holes. BCHH nights are always a blast, lots of loose musical fun, usually a special guest or two… much revelry. So c’mon out and cool down with us at Burke’s! Here’s the skinny:

Then, on Saturday 7/23, members of the Rivergods will participate in Sinners Circle 13 at Hygienic Art Park. There will be two songwriting circles, featuring some amazing songwriting talent from CT and beyond (Carl Franklin, Daphne Lee Martin, Eric Michael Lichter, Brian Skidmore, Lisa Martin, ArleneWow!, Frank Critelli, and the inimitable Dave Rave). Following that, there will be a ‘Disciples of Neil’ late night, guitar-soaked tribute to Neil Young, featuring a house band that includes Ben, Nancy, Dan and Mike from the Rivergods, as well as John Fries and Carl Franklin on lead guitars. Members of the nights’ circles will take vocal duties… it’s gonna be a scorcher. Full details below:
