Smart Bets: Jonathan Ammons CD release

Local foodie, bartender and man-about-town Jonathan Ammons is also a musician (in case you didn't know), formerly heading up Americana act Electric Ghost. After taking some time off from performing, he went into the studio to record his solo EP, Swinging for the Fences. An early listen reveals steel guitar, an easy two-step, hints of Nashville and Ammons' trademark alt-country song writing. Hear the finished product at the CD release party/DVD recording/live CD taping — a two-night extravaganza on Wednesday and Thursday, April 25 and 26 at The Magnetic Theatre. Mary Ellen Bush (Menage), Scott Murray (The Humbuckers), Sara Needham (Dixie Bee Liners), Clayton Jones (The Broomstars) and Josh Mimken join the lineup; 8 p.m. nightly, $7 in advance or $9 at the door. With opening sets from CaroMia Tiller and Pilgrim. http://themagneticfield.com.
