Friday night live music:
Al Park: 9-12 tonight.
He has commandeered many a Saturday night as front man of his own bands and has given a huge amount of positive energy to the local musical scene in his role as organiser and promoter. Nurturing talent and giving support and advice, he has brought music to the city with his venue Al’s Bar, seeing stars come and go, and as written his own experience into the history of the place. You could say Al has done it all, pushing shows, judging song competitions, vibing up gigs at the door, working record stores, running a tight gig schedule that would make most youngsters dizzy and the whole time constantly writing songs. Never really looking for the big time, for Al it has really been, to quote Townes, “for the sake of the song”.
