Opening reception on Friday, February 15th, 5:30 to 8 p.m., including a CD release party with live acoustic music featuring members of “The Flip Side”, one of the area’s hottest blues bands, celebrating the release of their latest CD of original songs, “Can’t Stop” on Brown Bag Studio Records.
The four Cape-based photographers curated in this two-week-long show have a wide variety of styles and talents. Two are young up-and-comers building promising careers. Two are well respected veterans with a long trail of accomplishments. All have a shared passion for capturing the energy of live music on camera.

The Flip Side is a popular Cape-based blues band whose motto is “Rockin’Blues to Move Your Shoes”. They perform regularly at live venues across the region. Core members Chris LoCascio (Keyboards) and Melissa Roberts Weidman (Bass) have been songwriting partners for over a decade. “Can’t Stop” is their second CD of all original songs, recorded and engineered in their own studio. One review cites:”Overall, The Flip Side just delivers in so many ways. It is evident that beyond being solid musicians with original, quirky material, these folks are having fun. It is music that at first listen charms you, then ever so slowly becomes the favorite one that you pop daily into your car or home CD player.”
For this acoustic show, LoCascio and Weidman will be joined by two of their Flip Side bandmates: Drew Buckley on drums and Wil Harrigan on saxophone. www.flipsidesongs.com
