Free music, with a comic twist, in Northborough
Northborough – CJ’s Steakloft, 369 W. Main St., will host singer-songwriter Howie Newman Friday, June 28, from 7 to 11 p.m. Along with well-known cover tunes, Newman mixes in a few of his own funny original songs. The Who, Huey Lewis, the Kinks, Tom Petty, the Beatles and Steely Dan are a few of the artists’ songs Newman performs, in addition to his own ditties about Boston drivers, intergalactic garbage collection and baseball.
He’ll also be singing songs from his live CD, “You Shoulda Been There,” which includes “My Baby Can’t Parallel Park,” a tune that was featured several times on National Public Radio’s (NPR) “Car Talk.”
A former sportswriter, Newman has penned a number of baseball songs, including “Blasted in the Bleachers” and “It’s The End of the Curse and We Know It,” an R.E.M. parody about the 2004 Red Sox.
Newman’s songs have been heard on WICN, 92.5 The River, WRKO, WEEI, the nationally syndicated Dr. Demento show, NPR, WUMB-FM and other stations across the country.
