Jack Rose, D. Charles Speer & the Helix in Lexington Tonight

Yes, we’ve been AWOL lately. not having posted since April 21! It’s terrible, really. Not only did we not run a What’s In the Weeklies? column last Wednesday, but we also haven’t run a Music This Weekend column either, or anything else aside from, hey, Antiques Roadshow. But we promise we’ll get back in the swing of things, soon.

Since we haven’t had a chance to post, we didn’t get to tell you about the excellent show last night at Lisa’s Oak Street Lounge featuring Jack Rose, D. Charles Speer & the Helix and local favorites Sapat. Jack Rose has been one of our favorite fingerpickers for years, take a look at a video of him performing his “Kensington Blues” (from YouTube):

D. Charles Speer and the Helix are a newer band from New York featuring members of the No Neck Blues Band and Sunburned Hand of the Man, but unlike those two groups the Helix has more of a country-rock feel. Dare we say it, they remind us of an amalgamation of Gram Parsons and perhaps even the Grateful Dead.

If you missed them in Louisville last night, which you probably did, you can check them out in Lexington tonight at the Dame. The show starts at 9 pm, is $6, and features Lexington locals Warmer Milks. So what are you waiting for?
