We’re calling it The Blues Explosion. First Nathan P. Murphy’s launches a blues-heavy summer concert series, then Dennis’ Place draws on Springfield’s pool of local talent for weekly Sunday-night blues shows, the Trash Angels decide nights off from gigging are for weenies. (Seriously; if you look at their schedule, they don’t even take holidays off.) Lindberg’s is the latest to join the blues fray, and the Commercial-Street club does so with a twist: They’re holding down happy houIts blues band of choice is Blue Plate Special, a familiar name in local circles. The weekly shows begin this Tuesday, June 2, and will start at 6 p.m. They’re calling it “Bluesday;” we’re calling it a welcome sign of a needed trend.
Score one for the blues: Bluesdays coming to Lindberg’s
