Hey Mavis 

When: Sat., Feb. 20, 8 p.m. 2016
On last year's What I Did, local rockers Hey Mavis teamed-up with Yonder Mountain String Band guitarist Adam Aijala, Chuck Auerbach (co-writer of the Black Keys song "Hard Row"), singer-songwriter Brent Kirby and the aforementioned Dixon (REM, Smithereens, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Red Clay Ramblers). Kirby plays guitar on a couple of songs and co-wrote several of the tracks, and Auerbach has been supportive of Hey Mavis from the start. He showed up with a stack of lyrics and the band picked some they liked for the album's title track. The music draws from myriad musical genres, including jazz, bluegrass, old-timey, folk and rock. The band's new single, "Yes, the Gypsy Music," suggests the scope of is musical influences. It celebrates the release of the song at tonight's show at the Akron Civic where it will have a limited pressing of the songs for sale. (Niesel)
