JIM, Loud & Stupid to play at Smoke Signals

LAKE PLACID — JIM to perform with special guest, Loud and Studid, at Smoke Signals, 2489 Main Street, 8 p.m.

Jim is a Lake Placid-based ensemble that has played rock ‘n’ roll since the 1990’s. They play original rockabilly, alternative, and hippy-rock jams. The band is known for its insane musical dexterity as well as a lyrical sensibility that ranges from the profound to the debauched. A classic band Jim was among the most popular acts in the region in the early 2000’s; though they never broke nationally, the quartet still has a very enthusiastic local following and has toured nationally. Here is some info I found online; I reckon it’s probably by Sven:

All their music has been written by band founder and leader Sven Curth to match their style ranging from rockabilly to funk to jam-oriented material.

Ana Egge to perform at Upper Jay Art Center

UPPER JAY — Singer-Songwriter Ana Egge will perform at the Upper Jay Art Center, Route 9N, on July 19 at 8 p.m.

Egge has always talked to strangers. As a songwriter, she’s as interested in other people’s stories as she is in her own. Her interest is genuine, compassionate– and as a result, so are her songs; they’re real stories, told from the heart with humor and humanity.
