Broad Ripple Gazette vol 9, no 15

first published in the Broad Ripple Gazette

Teddy Geiger with Jesse Ruben
Monday, July 23, 2012
Birdy’s Bar and Grill
2131 E. 71st Street
21+, doors 7:30, show 8:30, $10 presale, $12 day of show

Teddy Geiger is barely old enough to legally go to Birdy’s, but he’s been performing for years.
His debut album, "Underage Thinking," entered the Billboard Top 200 at #8 and produced a million-selling Top 10 single, "For You I Will" – when Teddy was just 16.

Not only is Teddy a great singer and songwriter, he’s proficient on a number of instruments including guitar, bass, piano and drums.

Teddy is popular with both fans and critics. "Teddy Geiger projects an easy charm along with his real pop chops," raved The New York Times while People magazine, in a three-and-a-half star "Critic's Choice" review, predicted that "Teddy Geiger should have a long career ahead of him."

Teddy's energetic new school pop, described as being in the spirit of rock's glory days, earned him spots on shows featuring Gavin DeGraw, Kelly Clarkson, and Hilary Duff's #1 pop tour. Teddy has shared bills with Brandi Carlile, Pete Yorn.  My favorite Teddy fact? He was first man to grace the cover of Seventeen magazine in five years.

The equally as talented and young Jesse Ruben will be opening the show.

Old Truck Revival CD Release Show
Saturday, July 28, 2012
Locals Only
2449 E. 56th Street
8:00 pm, 21+, $5.

The band, Old Truck Revival, is “Junk Box Mike” Calvert and John Bowyer, occasionally joined by some of their musical friends. They are hosting a Hillbilly Music Festival to celebrate the release of their first CD, “Oweda.” Joining them on the bill are Punkin Holler Boys and The Fabulous Slim Tones.

The evening will be a great mix of Bluegrass, Newgrass, Folk, and everything that is great about music. I hear a rumor that there might be a prize or two for the best dressed down outfit of the night.
