Blues reunion



8 p.m., Cornerstone Pub. $2.*


Blues Patrol tore up local stages in the '80s with their fiery brand of blues. Now, the wildly popular act is reuniting at Cornerstone Pub to celebrate the release of “We Walked the Streets Like Giants,” a DVD that pairs contemporary footage of Blues Patrol vet Gil Franklin, who's still active around town, with archival interviews and footage of the band performing in its heyday. Former Circuit Judge David Bogard put together the film, a 10-minute snippet of which will screen at the event. Longtime blues jam organizer Jeff Weeden hosts. A jam, featuring Charlotte Taylor, 420 Blues Band and other local blues players, precedes and follows the Blues Patrol's performance. *Admission is free to anyone wearing a Blues Patrol T-shirt. DVDs, normally $15, will be sold for half-price to those in Blues Patrol T-shirts, too.
