The night before the Street Festival, while the town waits in anticipation, the Rosendale Cafe will host an evening of songs by Wayne Montecalvo and the Natural Disasters. A longtime Rosendale artist / musician, Wayne will be rounding up the troops for an intimate evening of outdoor playing on the patio. “Hey, if it rains, we’ll go inside.” Many of your favorite Trash-Town* residents will be there. The line-up will include a few members from the Fighting McKenzies, and others. “But we probably won’t be playing any McKenzies songs. Hopefully we’ll be performing under the big top,” says the former McKenzies accordionist. “This’ll be cheap, laid back fun.” Expected musicians in the Natural Disasters will include John Wirtz, John P. Hughes, Kate McCoy, Ted Conway, Mike Crawley, Mario Lacedonia, Mark Brown, and Wayne Montecalvo.
* Trash-Town was a multi-disciplinary art installation and performance that happened a decade ago at the Cafe, featuring a large cast of local musical stars, many whom will be returning for the Pre-Festa Fiesta. A glimpse of Trash-Town can be viewed at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=42IJw3iDQWU
