LACONIA — The Lakes Region Art Association will hold its up-coming meeting on Monday, September 16, at the Woodside Building Conference Center at the Taylor Community, 435 Union Avenue, Laconia. The meeting begins at 7 p.m.
The guest speaker will be Laconia resident, Kevin Chubbuck, a traditional painter and watercolor artist who also burns into and paints on wood. Kevin regards wood as a canvas. When working on wood, his "brushes" are the varied width wood burning points allowing him to draw and shade. Often, his drawings are enhanced with acrylic paint. His subjects are portraits, landscapes and animals.

Association meetings are open to the general public.

Mr. Nick and the Dirty Tricks at Pitman's Friday night

LACONIA — Friday September 13 at 8 p.m. Pitman's Freight Room will host Mr. Nick and The Dirty Tricks:

The group unites veteran musicians Nick David (a.k.a. Mr. Nick), "Lonely" Gus Carlson, Teddy B. (Bukowski) and Rick Rousseau for one of the region's most formidable live outfits in any genre.

But their hearts belong to blues. Real blues. They play elegant, stomping and swinging classics like Little Walter's "Mellow Down Easy," Howlin' Wolf's "300 Pounds of Joy" and Wynonie Harris' "Good Morning Judge." Their bag of originals is a mix of rhumbas, jump blues, and boogies they're developing for a debut album and currently taking to legions of fans in New England.

"This band is a killer outfit," says David. And that's the truth. Everything comes together when they play: their deep mutual understanding and knowledge of blues, their originality and depth as players, and the band's ability to put on a great show that brings people to their feet.

Admission $12, doors open at 7:30 p.m. and Pitman's is a BYOB Venue. For more information check the website www.pitmansfreightroom.com or call 603-527-0043.
