Places and People That Aren't Gone
Fall is in the air, and with it comes a certain slant of light which reminds me of a Slickees Boys' song called "Your Autumn Eyes," a melancholy little ballad unlike the usual frantic beat of this gone away band. But before you Summer People plummet into Seasonal Despair, there's plenty of opportunity to get your nostalgia fix this temperate weekend. For instance homeboy favorite Tommy Keene is back in town for one night only at IOTA on Friday.
And Saturday Marshall Keith (ex-Slickee) and company will be up at the slightly spooky historic Hyattstown Mill for an annual shindig they like to call "Revolve." Then back here, in the no man's land between Bethesda and Rockville, the original folks of Goin' Goin' Gone will be holding forth at one of the area's last standing honky-tonks Hank Dietles on the Pike with the almighty guitar slinger Dan Hovey on board for the evening.
