Johnny Dowd, Michel Weber House Concert

Marty Boratin and Susan Tanner will host their last house concert of this season when Johnny Dowd performs,with Michel Weber opening, at 8 p.m. Saturday, October 17, at the Boratin/Tanner residence at 7341 Nelson Road in Hamburg (technically Eden).
Admision will be $10 for this great show, featuring Ithaca's gothic American folk country rock storyteller Johnny Dowd, who has played some great shows in Buffalo in the past, including Marty and Susan's wedding reception. Dowd may be best known for his debut album, "Wrong Side of Memphis," and released a new CD, "A Drunkard's Masterpiece," in 2008 on Bongo Beat Records.
Michel Weber has picked up her guitar and is singing and writing songs again; Val and I caught her with Vic Lazar at the Elmwood Avenue Festival of the Arts this summer, and she sounded great.
The event is BYOB, and "well-behaved kids and dogs are welcome. Well-behaved adults, too." Some food will be provided and a potluck dinner will be hosted at about 5 p.m.
For directions or more information, contact Marty at or at his cell at 812-4671.
