Rockin’ Ron’s a devoted baseball booster

— The Chiefs plan to play their 2013 home opener at 2 p.m. Friday, April 12, versus the Lehigh Valley IronPigs at Alliance Bank Stadium on Syracuse’s North Side; syracusechiefs.com; 474-7833. 

Lizard books Z-Bones

Clubowner Scott Schimpff  has booked some lively live music for this Saturday night at the Limp Lizard Bar & Grill, at 201 First St. here in the village.

At 9 p.m. Feb. 9, the Z-Bones will play tunes from the band’s fifth compact disc, “Another Century.” The new disc showcases roots rockin’ numbers such as an eerie, organ-driven “Ghost Ship” and a tongue-in-cheek dance ditty titled “I Don’t Love My Baby.”

Liverpool native Mike Gridley demonstrates his exciting electric guitar chops on tracks like “Broken,” “Ready to Go” and “Ride That Rail.” Leading the Z-Bones is the Z-man, guitarist Ed Zacholl, who’s ably supported by bassist Lorne Coon , drummer Louie Fortin  harmonica player Mike Lounsbery and, of course, Liverpudlian Gridley on the guit-box.

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

Mardi Gras music

Fat Tuesday is Feb. 12, but trombonist Bobby Morris, who lives in Liverpool, invites you to celebrate the season on Sunday afternoon, Feb. 10.
