Friday, Jan. 22

Celebrate! Dress snazzy! Twist, jive, and boogie all night!

Those are the directions for – and the duties of – all who enter the Kings Rook Club on Friday, Jan. 22, the night of Matty B’s 30th Birthday Bash.

A musical feast befitting Matt Boland – one of Erie’s most well known and hardest-working musicians – the bash is a country, blues, and rock ’n roll review featuring performances by Boland’s own Matty B & the Dirty Pickles, Bootleggers Bible Club (of which Boland is also a member),and local legends the Rodger Montgomery Blues Band.

“Matty has been around the scene a long time, constantly re-inventing himself, and has become a local staple in the music community,” says club promoter/manager Ryan Bartosek. “We’re happy he chose to celebrate his 30 trips around the sun at the Kings Rook Club.”

To best enjoy the evening’s stellar lineup and bask in Boland’s glow, party guests are asked to “dress up in their suits and dresses, do their hair up nice, and make it a sharp affair,” Bartosek adds.

Like many awesome events at the Kings Rook, Boland’s birthday bash is a free show for members and guests, and memberships and renewals will be readily available for purchase.

Happy birthday, Matty B. – Ryan Smith

Fighting for change in our most vulnerable communities.

Running into a blazing building can be ‘terrifying,’ but some choose to do it, anyway. 

Here are three good opportunities to lighten up as the nights grow longer.

Dancing Wheels bring a world premiere to Mercyhurst.

Shapeshift With Me, relative to the band’s spectacular catalog as a whole, is certainly one of their less powerful studio albums.

Some ‘multigrain’ bread has a little more protein than you’d like.
