Big Mike Griffin

Tonight’s concert lineup includes a nationally touring act coming to Nathan P. Murphy’s with an affinity for two-wheeled transportation in addition to considerable guitar-playing chops. Big Mike Griffin rolls into Springfield–on a tour bus, in this case, though we suspect the motorcycle custom-built for his almost-seven-foot frame is somewhere in tow–to play the local blues club with opening act Classic Reunion in the latest of Murphys’ Hot Rock & Blues summer concert series.

Elsewhere:

* Speaking of summer concert series, Sounds on the Square resumes on Park Central Square with Nathaniel Carroll (7 p.m.) and Tony Menown and The Expectations (8 p.m.). All shows are FREE and family friendly.

* Cooter Brown at The Outland

* NORML Benefit Show at The Blue Room at Billiards of Springfield

* Roots Of Mankind, The Spacetones and Phases at The Outland Ballroom

* EgoMagnet at The High Life Live Martini Lounge

* Trash Angels at Whiskey Holler

* ’90s Night at Lindberg’s with Teen Spirit

We’re used to seeing him tour or play a few gigs every week…not to mention the constant and endless recording. Now that those who didn’t know of him know that he knows his schtuff, we’re happy to pass on the news that he will be working on a new EP and is looking for additional musicians to contribute.
