LACONIA — Pitman's Freight Room at 94 New Salem Street in Laconia will host The Love Dogs on Friday, October 24 at 8 p.m. Admission is $15 and Pitman's is a BYOB venue.
Take one red-hot horn section - we're talkin' alto, tenor, baritone saxes and trombone - down and dirty. Add liberal amounts of barrelhouse boogie-woogie piano and stinging Fender guitar. Pour over a funky and swinging rhythm section that Blues Review magazine called "the best in the business", and top it all off with a crazy and charismatic front man with one of the biggest blues voices around. Season with a few years on the road tearing up juke joints, festivals and concert halls across the U.S. and Canada and on both sides of the Atlantic.
Sound tasty? It's a recipe for music and mayhem, for intensity and irreverence; it's The Love Dogs. The Dogs combine elements of jump blues, New Orleans R&B and early rock 'n' roll into their own powerhouse sound. The band's lineup consists of Scheer, Alizon Llssance (keyboards, vocals), Myanna (alto/tenor sax, vocals), Glenn Shambroom (guitar, baritone sax), Randy Bramwell (bass, vocals), Steve Brown (drums, vocals), along with part time Dogs Mario Perrett (tenor sax/vocals), Mark Paquin (tenor sax, trombone) and old friend "SAX" Gordon Beadle (tenor and baritone sax). Voted "Best New England Band" by Blues Audience magazine.
Catered dinner buffet available before the show. Call 527-0043 for details and reservations. www.pitmansfreightroom.com

MEREDITH — With Halloween fast approaching, monsters, ghosts and goblins will soon be walking the streets. Tales of horror will be circling. And, on The Winnipesaukee Playhouse's stage, the Winni Players community theatre group will be presenting Donovan's Brain.
Most productions at The Winnipesaukee Playhouse need sets, lights, and costumes to help tell the story. But the cast of Donovan's Brain, playing October 24th and 25th at 7:30 pm, won't rely on any of that.
That's because Donovan's Brain will be staged as a radio play.
And while the audience will encounter a 1940's reproduction radio studio onstage, director Brett Billings doesn't want that to fool you, "It's really all about what you hear."
"Our cast has been working really hard, and in a pretty unusual way, to get used to sharing a story that relies entirely on sound, not on what you see."
One of the most popular science fiction thriller novels of the World War II years, Donovan's Brain tells the harrowing story of Dr. Patrick Cory's vaulting ambition to conquer nature and experiment with a mechanical soul.
"Where does life begin and where does it end?" he writes in his casebook under the heading, Experiment 87. "In the eyes of the world, Donovan is dead, but his brain lives on. Does that mean Donovan is still alive?"
Last Halloween, the Winnipesaukee Playhouse performed Frankenstein: The Radio Play, and much like Victor Frankenstein, Dr. Cory, originally played by Orson Wells, falls victim to his experiment and must contend with the deadly consequences as the brain's power grows more and more sinister.
Adapted from the popular radio program, Suspense, this production will focus on radio theater as a unique style of storytelling, and will appeal to those interested in World War II, science fiction, and unique theater experiences. And with Halloween creeping closer, it is a tale well calculated to keep you in ... Suspense!
Tickets for Donovan's Brain are $10 and available at www.winnipesaukeeplayhouse.org or by calling (603) 279-0333. Seating is general admission and doors will open a half hour prior to showtime.
