Due to some unforeseen illness of one of the band member, Starryville won't be able to perform tonight at Rhodeside Grill. We are very bummed about this as we love the Rhodeside. We will be back on September 19th. Hope to see you all at our next show at Westover Beer Garden next month. We'll keep u posted.
Some days ago, on my almost weekly outing to some overpriced organic grocery store where well dressed SUV driving people allow themselves to feel planet conscious, my eye got caught by a name on the sticker of some grape based pink beverage: Miraval.
No BS, no surprise, just fun. We tell you what we're gonna play, and we'll play it, and it's gonna be freakin' fun. Pretty simple. See ya all there!
Do you like sandwiches? I'm sure you do. Especially a Starryville sandwich. Take a good slice of Lesson Zero, add some delicious Starryville, and put a Big Green Cherry on top. Enjoy with no moderation at the Rhodeside Grill in Arlington VA this Friday March 6 2015. Show starts at 9:30pm.
We're also very pleased to welcome Bob, our new drummer. This is going to be his maiden flight with the Stars. Enjoy the ride Bob!
Epicurus in this picture looks very serious. But he was a brave guy! Here was his way of life according to Wikipedia: "For Epicurus, the purpose of philosophy was to attain the happy, tranquil life, characterized by ataraxia—peace and freedom from fear—and aponia—the absence of pain—and by living a self-sufficient life surrounded by friends. He taught that pleasure and pain are the measures of what is good and evil; death is the end of both body and soul and should therefore not be feared; the gods neither reward nor punish humans; the universe is infinite and eternal; and events in the world are ultimately based on the motions and interactions of atoms moving in empty space."
Hell yeah, that sounds good to us! This is why we are going to play in his cafe (Epicure Cafe), this Friday May 2nd 2014. Show starts at 8pm with our friends Big Green Cherry opening with an acoustic set. Then Starryville will electrify the atmosphere starting at 8:45pm. Later on Big Green Cherry will take back the stage for a high voltage set apotheosis. And I forgot the big green cherry on top: there will be some freebees for any table that's spending more than 50 bucks! You can't miss that!
Last Saturday night we were up to go out but we did not really find any appealing show to go to, at first at least. Our eye got caught on a Bob Marley tribute show. One more f....... tribute band I thought, this is for people that don't have enough personality, so they need to impersonate some iconic band, and cash in on their back.
