Root Riot - Save More Lounge 8/2/2014

Roots Riot Presents, has been a good theme for the City of Chicago. These are FREE shows held every 1st Saturday of the month, at the Save More Lounge in Chicago. We had a cool lineup this evening.

I am starting off with some photos around the neighborhood. Wouldn't you know, photographed everything but the outside of the Save More Lounge . . . 

Starting us off this evening was Mark Verbeck. He sounded very cool playing solo, though I do miss the voice of him and his heart throb Carlie. Together they make up Scotch Hollow. Tonight, we called him "Tator Tot", which Mark then added, "extra crispy".

Note that I started of photographing with available light. Quickly I switched to flash. Later I changed to a sepia tone setting and available light. Photographers prerogative.

Next up, Lonesome Tony, who hosts this 1st Saturday of the month event. Tony has done a good job promoting and supporting roots music in the Chicago area.

After Tony played a few songs, he brought up Mark for a little "Me and the Devil" music.

Mississippi Gabe headlined. I first met and listened to Gabe at the Office Session about a year ago, when I went up to listen to Lou Shields. Gabe's style of blues grabbed me. Bought 2 of his CD's then and wore them out. Bought his latest tonight.
