music notes 4-7-05

Every Wednesday, now through the summer, Recycled Records (625 E. Adams St., 217-522-5122) will feature area music acts from 5:30-7:30 p.m. and stay open until 8. Last week, in case you missed it, Resident Genius played the first concert. On Wednesday, April 13, Josh Reilly, co-host of the Underground City Tavern’s Tuesday open mic, strums his guitar and fills the hallowed halls with his ever-pleasing voice and outstanding song selection. As they say at the store: Silence sucks.
Remember the delightful female trio known as Tres Femmes that charmed the pants off crowds at Recycled Records during the Christmas walk last year and worked over listeners at Jazz Central Station after that? The group is now on hold, but the individual gals are working the country hard. Una femme, Victoria Vox, rolls into Floyd’s Thirst Parlor (212 S. Fifth St., 217-522-2020) at 9:30 p.m. Monday, April 11, as the scheduled guest for Eric Welch’s Monday Open Mic. Hosts Welch and the Disputes run a lively stage featuring a special guest each week. Upcoming artists include Micah Walk, Jill Manning, Fred Manker, and Raoul.
The amazing Prairie Grapevine Folklore Society continues to organize and advertise concerts, preparing a monthly offering that one might call, in another line of work, a quality product. At 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 9, at the Abraham Lincoln Unitarian Universalist Congregation, 745 Woodside Rd., the PGFS presents Tribus Futuras, an Andean (i.e., from the Andes Mountains) group based in Chicago. Founders Luis and Susan Alban perform on a wide variety of musical instruments, including the classical and 12-string guitars, plus the charango, cuatro llanero, zampona, quena, ocarina, native goatskin drum, chagchas, and bamboo and metal chimes. Tickets are $10, and seats are plentiful. There’s no smoke to breathe, just delightful desserts to be purchased and consumed at intermission. Children are encouraged to attend and bring their parents.
Rockabilly lives in the lives of the members of the Two Timin’ 3, a trio from out New England way. They do their hair, wear their clothes, and play rockabilly just as folks used to do nearly 50 years ago. No neo- or alt- or other hyphenated descriptions needed here — this is true-blue, by-the-book, original-not-extra-crispy rockabilly music. Dress up and come on down to the Underground City Tavern (700 E. Adams St., 217-789-1530) at 9 p.m. Thursday, April 7, for a swingin’ good time.
