*****EDITOR’S NOTE***** Every now and then, we all need a little vacation. For me, it’s been way too long. I will be taking a step back for a couple weeks but, the “Weekly Music Lineup” will return on 9/16/21. In the meantime, I have written and scheduled a couple articles – including a new Spotify playlist – and I will do my best to make some time to share them in the groups I normally share in. Please keep an eye out for them and continue to support local live music and the venues that bring it to us every week.
If you would like to see your events advertised here every week, simply let me know your schedule by Wednesday evening. Whether your event is live and in person or on-line, you can promote it here. Use the “contact us” form on the website, Facebook messenger or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please take a minute to like and share us on Facebook. Here are this weeks’ lineups.
