This is a (very) abbreviated version of the lineup this week. In my haste to get on the road for a few out of town events, I left a good bit of information behind. If you sent me your info and somehow got left out, I do apologize and assure you it was not intentional. I’ll be back in town and back to normal for next week. In the meantime, there is still a pretty solid lineup of great music for you to enjoy.
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.
