On Saturday, November 23rd, Karen Lovely will be celebrating her 54th birthday and the 5th Annual Sagittarian Birthday Bash with a special show at Duff’s Garage. Karen states that she is celebrating another year doing what I love and loving what I do by throwing a Big Party with special guests including Robbie Laws and “Mr. E.” Also, in honor of sharing the same birthday as the late RL Burnside, she will be performing some of Burnside’s tune

Karen believes that though she is celebrating her own birthday, in the spirit of it is better to give than to receive, all attendees will receive cards good for a free digital download from her forthcoming record, 10 Miles of Bad Road, co-produced by Curtis Salgado and Tony Braunagel, and Curtis was the inspiration for the title track.

Duff’s Garage is located at 1635 SE 7th and admission is $15.00. This is a Cascade Blues Association co-sponsored event, so show your membership card for a $1.00 off the door. And if you’re a Sagittarian, you’ll get another $1.00 off admission. As Karen says, “It’s gonna be a helluva party!”
