Bethany's Creamery Station headlines Strange Brew Friday
Does anyone still own a water bed? Does anyone even REMEMBER water beds?
Creamery Station, the mellow collective of Nutmeg jamsters from Bethany, is a band whose music makes me want to fall back onto a water bed and luxuriate. Psilocybin optional.
You can, of course, identify the connective ancestral tissue in Creamery Station's anatomy — the Dead, Blues Traveler, Allmans, Phish, the Band — but the Creamsters' approach to songcraft includes a hooky, pop element that brings accessibility to a genre wherein extended improv can push the less patient in the crowd toward the exits.
See Creamery Station Friday in Norwich at the Strange Brew Pub as they continue to tour behind their "Pastures of Plenty" album. Opening is a band called The Hobbits. Astoundingly, they are the only band in history to call themselves "The Hobbits."
Creamery Station, 9 p.m. Friday, Strange Brew Pub, 86 Water St., Norwich; $5; (860) 222-8350.
