Mister Rourke to Perform with Beat the Donkey Tonight in Boston
DJ Mister Rourke (a regular collaborator with Club dElf and Addison Groove Project) will take the stage with Beat the Donkey tonight at Harpers Ferry in Allston, MA. The 10-piece ensemble, which is led by percussionist Cyro Baptista (Trey Anastasio, Medeski Martin & Wood, John Zorn), kicked off its northeast run last night at Higher Ground in Winooski, VT when Jennifer Hartswick and Dave Grippo (both of Trey Anastasio’s band) sat in for most of the second set. The show was webcast through www.dcn.com and is currently available for download. The group also performs tomorrow night at Pearl Street in Northampton, MA and this summer at festivals such as Bonnaroo, Ripplefest and Soul Flow.
Meanwhile, music fans can now breathe a bit easier literally – as Harpers Ferry no longer allows cigarette smoking, along with the rest of Boston (its about time).
