2.) Slim Chance and the Convicts are playing Smith's Olde Bar this Wednesday April 4, opening for Wayne "the Train" Hancock. It will be an evening of real roots oriented country music. Showtime is 9PM Sharp, and the cover is $12 adv. & $15 at the door. Welcome to the Redneck Underground. (Slim also was our first ever TG musical guest. What a legend!)
2.) Deja Blue, the TrueGritz kinda sorta house band, will be playing 3X this spring! Now where else can you hear "(Blaming It All On The) Lights of Broadway" as a bluegrass, kickass tune? Only with Deja Blue. According to Mark, their upcoming shows are:
- Saturday, April 7th, @ 8:25 pm: we'll be performing a set for the WRFG "Georgia Grown" Bluegrass festival ( A.K.A., Peach Blossom Festival) at the State Farmer's Market, Exhibition Hall. Bands will be playing from 11:00 am to 10:00 PM. Definitely a slice of life. We'd love to see you there.
- Thursday, April 19th, @ 9:00-ish, we'll be headlining at the Red Light Cafe. Come early, bring your acoustic instrument, and jam before the show. (NOTE: Pauline Ashley-Wilkes threatening to sing backup vocals at this pre-gig event.)
- Saturday, May 12th @ 8:00 PM, we are performing at the Red Top Mountain State Park. Great camping opportunity!
3.) Tania keeps (monogamous, romantic) hope alive here.
4.) James Marlow kicks-off his campaign for Georgia's 10th Congressional tomorrow, Tuesday April 3. Disclosure: I'm going to be supporting this campaign, so if you don't like hearing about it, too bad, leave a comment.
6.) Save the date for the Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper annual River Revival party on Thursday, May 10th at Park Tavern at Piedmont Park. This is an awesome party with dancin' and Dames A'Flame and food and booze and bluegrass, and also a fundraiser to help keep Georgia's rivers, and our drinking water here in Atlanta, clean. I'm on the host committee again too, so if you buy tickets online, please list me as your host committee member.
