"It's a rare thing for a musician to have such a unique sound that you can identify them within two notes, but what's even more amazing is that Mark invented his instrument  the two string slide bass  and, one could argue, invented a genre as well: 'Low Rock.'"
Mike Rivard, Club d'Elf, Boston Pops

July 3, 2019 will signify 20 years since Morphine frontman Mark Sandman died unexpectedly during a performance at Nel Nome Del Rock Festival in Palestrina, Italy. To recognize this anniversary, and to celebrate the songs, sly humor and friendship he brought to the Boston music scene and beyond, a sizable group of his collaborators and admirers will present two complete shows of Marks songs at the Lizard Lounge in Cambridge MA on Friday, July 5. Shows are separate admission and will start at 7 and 10 pm. Admission is $20/ $25 in advance, with a limited number of ringside tables available for $100.

Sandmans vision of music and life elevated and enticed countless listeners and collaborators into joining him on a trip into the night, around the world, and through the dark recesses of their own imaginations. To paraphrase Sandmans song Early To Bed, any gathering in the red glow and cozy confines of one of his favorite haunts, the Lizard, is a celebration of NOT missing out on the night life, a philosophy he frequently honored. At the same time, his off-the-charts charisma sometimes obscured how profound, durable and fun his words and music were. Needless to say they will be on ample display for this evening.

Please join us as a stellar lineup of voices and instrumentalists re-illuminates Mark's work and celebrates the community that he gathered around himself and help us enjoy the eternal pleasures of NOT missing out on the night life.
