Static

Certainly, the city has changed a lot since Stephenson left five years ago. But then again, so has Carl.

Etc.... Those shiny metallic shirts and tightly shorn red-blond locks seem to insinuate a serious change in direction for local blues rocker Hadden Sayers. But not to worry: Beneath the new 'do and glammy duds, it was the same old fun-loving Had who showed up at the Fabulous Satellite Lounge November 21. The performance was one of two back-to-back nights the singer/guitarist was recording for a live release due in February. And while Sayers and his band were as polished as ever (even with a new drummer on hand), they had more on their minds than simply getting everything down on tape as they ran through a vigorous set before a packed house. The material from Sayers's latest release, Retrofutura, sounded especially crisp.

Saturday, Global Village bids farewell to members Chad Strader and Les Greene with a special show at the Satellite. Both are leaving the popular groove-funk outfit on friendly terms. Meanwhile, Global Village has every intention of continuing. Expect them back in area clubs with new members sometime next spring, after they take a break to regroup and record.
