Bayberry’s Luther could’ve portrayed Superman’s Luthor

— Speaking of Old Liverpool Road, that self-proclaimed superannuated thoroughfare is the subject of the latest Liverpool Legend Series DVD set to be screened for the first time at 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 13, in the Carman Community Room at Liverpool Public Library.

Fancifully titled, “Once Upon a Time on Old Liverpool Road,” the new video’s script was written and narrated by local historian Joyce Mills.

Viewers will be amazed by the large herds of prize-winning Holsteins that were raised there and will learn about the Franklin automobile and how Arts and Crafts Movement architect Ward Wellington Ward built his personal home, Le Moyne Manor, overlooking Onondaga Lake.

Co-owner Scott Schimpff has booked some lively live music this month at the Limp Lizard Bar & Grill, at 201 First St. here in the village.

Riveting rockabilly quintet the Fabulous Ripcords return to the Lizard at 9 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 15. The band will play tunes from its recent CD, “Voodoo Girl,” an all- original effort that runs the gamut from blues to rock to swing. Tracks include “Bake Me a Pie” and “Burn This House Down.”

(By the way, Ripcords lead guitarist Irv Lyons has begun g a duo side project with bassist Mike Casale whgo lives in Liverpool.)

On Wednesday, Dec. 19, solo country performer T.J. Sacco plays the Limp Lizard, and Shawn Halloran plugs in on Dec. 22. Guitarist Jeff Jones and his Pale Green Stars play their post-modern honky tonk tunes at the Liverpool Lizard on Dec. 29.

Admission is always free at the Limp Lizard, and the barbecue is always delicious; 451-9774.
