Staff Pick: Lydia Loveless, Patrick Sweany, Tim Easton and Mooncussers at the Bluestone

From the November 15, 2012 edition

Thanksgiving tends to bring home the prodigal sons and daughters, which for Columbus audiences means a chance to see some of the state’s great Americana practitioners in one place this Thanksgiving Eve. The now well-traveled Lydia Loveless returns to headline The Bluestone before working on her next batch of whip-smart bloodlettings this winter. Native son Tim Easton rolls back in to show off his ever-reliable roots rock chops. Massillon blues-rock favorite Patrick Sweany will be in the house too, as will Mooncussers, the alt-country power led by Loveless’ guitarist, Todd May. It’s a different kind of meat and potatoes to gorge on this year.
