September 2014 Second Saturday
Featured Band: The Obsoleets
Saturday, September 13, 2014

The Obsoleets, a favorite Media band featuring Parris Bradley and John Stovicek, will perform at 2nd Saturday on September 13th at the Franklin Mint, State and Olive Streets at 7:00PM. The Obsoleets perform folk, blues, ballads and more with a wide variety of traditional acoustic instruments including tenor guitar, mandolin, ukulele, upright bass, banjo and accordion, and the intriguing Chinese erhu. Their music is inspired by a century-deep catalog of blues, jazz & folk songs revamping them in their own inimitable style. From modern takes on arcane Americana to rootsy reworkings of contemporary songs, band members John Stovicek, Parris Bradley, Steven Patrick Smith, Bill Hayward, Alex Uskaraitis, Leon Barton, and Qin Qian add a distinctive touch to everything they do. They have played at the Community Arts Center, Burlap and Bean and at the Media Blues Stroll. At the Mainstay in Rock Hall, MD they were the band for renowned bluesman Lonnie Shields. The Media Arts Council and the businesses of State Street sponsor 2nd Saturday. Please visit our website mediaartscouncil.org for more information.

On the 2nd Saturday of every month, over 30 businesses on and around State Street in Media stay open late as part of a free arts event. From 6:00 to 9:00 pm, shops, galleries and cafes host local musicians or display the work of local artists. Visitors can stroll the friendly streets of Media and use M.A.C. 2nd Saturday map to find music, art and participating shops.
