Roger Bryan and the Orphans August 23

Roger Bryan and the Orphans will release their new CD, "Recovery," on Harvest Sum Recordings, at a shindig along with Johnny Nobody, while Mark Norris and Jesse Mank provide their vinyl DJ skills, Saturday, August 23, at Mohawk Place, 37 East Mohawk Street in Buffalo.
Bryan and band were good enough to provide a CD preview copy of this vinyl release (recorded by Matt Smith, guitarist for the Orphans and formerly with Scott Carpenter and the Real McCoys, and mixed and mastered by Armond Petri), and it sounds real good; to me, what/who comes to mind is Paul Westerberg with a little Ryan Adams thrown in, both meant to be compliments. Bryan's CD from 2007, "The Engine Hum," made my best-music list for 2007, and I planned to finally fully review it here before the August 23 show, but you can see where that has gone so far.
