Well hey now, it’s #TinyTuesday. Today’s the day that Crossroads Music, the family-owned music shop in Amagansett, kicks off its “Tiny Room Shows” with the groovy sounds of Andy Aledort, an acclaimed guitarist who tours with Dickey Betts of the Allman Brothers Band. (And dubious name for a song, but here’s Andy’s version of “Big-Legged Woman.”)
Michael Clark, the owner of Crossroads, says there are a couple seats left — call 631.907.4838 to lock those in — but otherwise, it will be standing-room-only tonight. Doors open at 7:30 p.m., the show starts at 8 p.m, and tickets are $20. But wait, there’s more: Free coffee and desserts, courtesy of the store’s woolly division, Crossroads Knitworks. We might slip a little something into our coffee, heh heh heh. (Kidding, Crossroads!)
The Tiny Room Shows (aptly named for the intimate space inside the store, with chairs supplied by Bermuda Parties), will continue on Tuesdays throughout the spring. Mark you calendars: April 28, Kerry Kearney, blues guitarist. May 19, Jeff and Grant Allegue, acoustic. Crossroads also hosts jam sessions on Sundays, and will teach you guitar and other musical instruments.
Meanwhile, in jelly bean related news…
Easter is coming. If there is one thing we love more than giant bunnies, it’s good causes. Our friends at the 1770 House in East Hampton have both. Every year, the historic inn and restaurant raffles off a gigantic chocolate rabbit (yay, sugar fix!) for charitable groups in the area. This year, the Flying Point Foundation for Autism, a nonprofit based in Water Mill, N.Y., will receive the proceeds. Visit this page to buy a raffle ticket. Do it now! The winner will be drawn on Saturday night, just before you put your Easter basket out.
What’s your favorite film festival?
We trust that if you live in the Hamptons, your answer was not “Sundance” or “Cannes” but rather, our very own Hamptons International Film Festival. If you feel strongly on the matter, and even if you don’t, head to USA Today’s 10Best Readers’ Choice contest for Best Film Festival and vote for our local HIFF. You have until Monday April 13 at noon. Someone tell Julianne Moore to vote, too. She went straight from the 2014 HIFF to the winner’s podium on Oscar night. That’s got to count for something.
