Okay, a few months ago, when Marty Casey abruptly left The Lovehammers…my FAVORITE BAND…I was beside myself. Angry, disappointed, and a slew of other not-so-happy emotions. I bit my tongue, literally, purposely not speaking on the record to anyone in (or formerly in) The Lovehammers. I figured it’d be too easy to spew something in the heat of the moment that might be regretted later. I knew that after some time passed emotions would subside.
I’m somewhat surprised that I’m ready to see Marty Casey perform this weekend. My daughter’s birthday is this week and she’s never had the chance to see him play, so part of her gift is to experience his acoustic performance Saturday at The Morton Arboretum in Lisle. Marty will be there this Saturday afternoon 3-5 in the store signing autographs and then performs a live acoustic set at 5:30p.
The first 100 people to purchase his “Trees” dog tag necklace will receive a free CD single of “Trees” (a special acoustic version featuring Marty Casey and Dave Navarro).
