Weird Beards play 33

Published March 14. 2013 4:00AM

Methinks the idea of a musical residency is a good thing for many reasons - not the least of which is because you know when and where a favorite band will be on a regular basis.

Last year, Motley Crue set up camp in Las Vegas for a 12-date string of shows in the Hard Rock Casino and Hotel. There are folks who define their "long weekend" getaways to New Orleans around the idea that they absolutely must be at the Maple Leaf on Tuesday night for the weekly gig by the Rebirth Brass Band. Heck, even Woody Allen plays jazz clarinet every Monday in the Carlyle in Manhattan.

The Weird Beards, the region's premiere art-kook act, are following suit. They'll host each Sunday evening in March from the stage at 33. The gigs - part performance piece/part musical insanity - are billed as the Weird Beards' Medicine Show, and expect the unexpected as well as familiar bits.

- RICK KOSTER

The Weird Beards, 10 p.m. Sunday, 33, 33 Golden St., New London; free; (860) 443-1193.
