Big Sandy, Laika, more...

Two more Fly-Rite shows for you Southern Califino's (new word) this weekend: Friday night we're tippin' in to The Blue Cafe where we share the stage with openers James & Burke, and Northern 45. I'm not familiar with either of these acts... but, what the hell, let's just say that they are nothing short of amazing and will make this the MUST-SEE show of the year!

All you surf n instro fans take note: Saturday night we are happy to be joined by Finland's Laika & The Cosmonauts at The Bordello in Downtown Los Angle-eez! I haven't seen these astro-cats for, like, light years man.... and I'm looking forward to hearing what they have up their spacesleeves these days. Dig it!

ok... so there you have it!
Hope to see you... if not there, then in my dreams. ;-)

L-A-T-E-R spells later,

Big Sandy

Fly-Rite News 10/10/08

Hello friends and greetings from the Fly-Rite Ranch here in sometimes sunny Southern California. It's been somewhat hectic for us over the last three weeks, with back to back weekenders in Barcelona, Baltimore, and Las Vegas. It's good to be back home and will be doing shows here in The Golden State through the rest of the year. Here's what coming up over the next several days:

Sat 10/11/08 The Casbah San Diego, CA
Fri 10/17/08 The Blue Cafe Long Beach, CA
Sat 10/18/08 The Bordello Downtown Los Angeles, CA

Some of you already know that our long-time bass player Jeff West is out of commission for a little while. He's been having problems with his hand, which he's seeking treatment for... and we'll keep everyone up-to-date on his progress. In the meantime... we have the pleasure of welcoming birthday-boy Kevin Stewart to the Fly-Rite Bandstand. We've had a couple of shows with him so far, as witnessed in the clips below, and he's been doing a fantastic job.

Well, my friends... hope to see you around sometime soon!
best wishes always,
Big sandy
