Red Rover Thursdays at Habitat Brewing- an intimate, listening-room style show on the FIRST and THIRD Thursdays of the month. All-original music from local musicians.
Still FREE, and still LOCAL. September's second installment features Laura Thurston and Andy Dale Petty. Please bring cash donations for the musicians, if’n you please.
Andy Dale Petty
Laura brings multi-instrumentalism to a new level! You will be enthralled when you see this lovely lady rappin’ on a suitcase kick drum with one foot and tappin’ on a tambourine with the other; all the while, hands on her guitar and mouth on her harp. On top of that, Laura then adds sweet sugary vocals to her acoustic Folk-Grass mix while giving energy and presence to capture your attention.
This talented musician launched her solo career in 2011, performing up and down the east coast. With her original ideas and talented executions this one woman band is sure to dazzle any audience. Laura Thurston has her own unique style from a vintage era that will enliven you and have you feelin fine.
KING KHAN wrote following words about Andy Dale Petty:
I met Andy Dale Petty in Huntsville, Alabama, he had a magazine in his pocket with all the state train routes in it and was telling me about how he loved to hop trains like the hobos back in the day. He taught me how to run next to a train and hop it, always make sure you can see the spokes in the wheel turning, if you cant than the train is too fast and you might lose a limb or two or your head. He fell asleep on a cold wooden porch that evening and then woke everyone up with his lovely geetar playing in the morning. Alabama is known as the place where the first confederate flag was designed and raised, incidentally it was also the place where the first rocket was made to take humans to the moon. Thankfully both slavery and moon travel were abandoned and replaced by white castle, waffle houses and welfare. People like Andy Dale make America the beautiful nightmare that it is. His guitar playing and hobosexuality preserve the fruits of the nation in a jar rather than a petri dish. He may not be able to turn water into wine but he can sure make a rainy afternoon feel like pickles and orange crush. The world would be a cold place without Andy Dale and his geetar, so if you see him by the train tracks, buy him a can of beans and throw a hotdog in it.... he deserves it.
