More Musical Goodies for the Long Weekend, at the Van Dyke

They'll be powering through the long four-day weekend, offering many tasty musical treats to sample. Friday is looking particularly strong, with a double booking consisting of their Artist of the Month, the Grammy-nominated jazz great Ira Sullivan and a personal fav from among local fusionistas, Lanzallamas Monofonica, whose blend of world, Afro-Caribbean, Latin jazz and much more is always a solid soundtrack to any party. Saturday the offering comes in the form of Cuban jam band Conjunto Progreso, and you know what that means--lots of descarga and plenty of cubaneo. Thursday (yes, Thanksgiving) they've got the Leon Foster Thomas Quartet serving up Caribbean jazz, and Sunday there's a Latin songwriters series.
There you have it. More good reasons to get out this weekend. Now stay the hell away from the movies.
