DCSC August 31: Michael Lesko and Jess Kitch
- Down County Social Club 864 South Undermountain Road Sheffield, MA, 01257 United States (map)
We hope you join us in the DCSC, Thursday August 31th, for Michael Lesko and Jess Kitch.
Songwriter and front-man of Dreamaholic, Michael Lesko, thinks of himself as a sad clown with a tiny cowboy hat on. Some people think he's insane. 30% of them are right says Michael. However everyone agrees his music is beautiful and they all pester him about finishing his recordings so they can buy something and listen to him when ever they want. "It's control thing" says Michael. "They can't handle the fleeting joy." Michael says he's going to put music out as soon as he can! He promises. But for now, seeing him live is the only way to get your dose. So if you haven't already, go see what all the Berkshire craze is about. It's like folk alternative, but better.
Jess Kitch is a sweet and sultry soprano doing acoustic sets that spread a profoundly positive message.
7-10pm Thursday August 31st at The Down County Social Club.
