Heap and The 3-Pack at Six String Cafe

Published November 28. 2013 4:00AM

The New York City band Heap hits New London Saturday for a performance in the Six String Cafe (formerly the Bank Street Cafe).

But it's more than just another tour stop.

Leader Tim Heap is a native who graduated from New London High School and Connecticut College before taking his guitar to the Apple to create joyous, raucous pub rock. Heap has released albums such as "Oddball," "On the Cheap" and "Live @ Arlene's Grocery" for Rave On Records, the local label started by the now-defunct band The Reducers. Expect fresh Heap material as well as old reliables - and the usual high-energy stage show.

Part of the magic of this night, though, will be a short performance, sandwiched between Heap sets, by a new band called The 3-Pack - a trio comprised of ex-Reducers Peter Detmold, Tom Trombley and Hugh Birdsall.

Fans of both acts will of course realize that Thanksgiving weekend shows by The Reducers and, frequently, Heap were a big tradition. This will be an emotional, exuberant night.

Heap, 9 p.m. Saturday, Six String Cafe, 639 Bank St., New London; with The 3-Pack; $5; (860) 444-1444, six-string-cafe.com.

Most big stores in Rhode Island, Maine and Massachusetts are barred by law from opening on Thanksgiving. Connecticut does not have this restriction. What do you think of it?
That is great. It reminds people that the holiday is about family and friends, not consumerism.

That is great. Workers at those stores will get to spend it with friends and family.

Those laws should be updated. Stores are only meeting consumer demands.

Either way, I don't care. I don't take part in bargain hunting, so it doesn't affect me.

Stores should be able to do what they want. If you don't like it, don't shop there.
