Epicurus in this picture looks very serious. But he was a brave guy! Here was his way of life according to Wikipedia: "For Epicurus, the purpose of philosophy was to attain the happy, tranquil life, characterized by ataraxia—peace and freedom from fear—and aponia—the absence of pain—and by living a self-sufficient life surrounded by friends. He taught that pleasure and pain are the measures of what is good and evil; death is the end of both body and soul and should therefore not be feared; the gods neither reward nor punish humans; the universe is infinite and eternal; and events in the world are ultimately based on the motions and interactions of atoms moving in empty space."
Hell yeah, that sounds good to us! This is why we are going to play in his cafe (Epicure Cafe), this Friday May 2nd 2014. Show starts at 8pm with our friends Big Green Cherry opening with an acoustic set. Then Starryville will electrify the atmosphere starting at 8:45pm. Later on Big Green Cherry will take back the stage for a high voltage set apotheosis. And I forgot the big green cherry on top: there will be some freebees for any table that's spending more than 50 bucks! You can't miss that!
Last Saturday night we were up to go out but we did not really find any appealing show to go to, at first at least. Our eye got caught on a Bob Marley tribute show. One more f....... tribute band I thought, this is for people that don't have enough personality, so they need to impersonate some iconic band, and cash in on their back.
I think we should cover this.
The summer is dead, whatever, let's cheer to the Fall! Ein Prosit!
We will be celebrating the Fall at the Westover Beer Garden in Arlington VA this Saturday October 19, 2013. Remember to always drink in moderation! Nobody wants to look like these dudes on the picture, that seemed to have enjoyed a little bit too much of that golden and bubbly beverage... Or would you?
Show starts at 6pm for 3 hours of crazy entertainment. See you there!
We will be entertaining the crowd at the Grassy Knoll stage from 2 to 3pm. Don't be late!
If you don't know Del Ray in Alexandria VA that's a great opportunity to visit that charming neighborhood. That ice cream place, Dairy Godmother Frozen Custard & Nostalgic Treats, next to St Elmo Coffee Pub is one of our favorite.
Here we go again, when we're not talking about beer, we're talking about wine... We will be at the Great Grapes Wine and Food Festival in Reston VA this Saturday September 7 2013. Show starts at 12:30pm, for two hours of pure and intoxicating Starryville sound. You like it red, you like it white, or you like it rosé... Well, we like them all, and they will all be served at the Festival. For maximum enjoyment, always drink with moderation of course.
