All In The Family

New Music Tuesday

It’s whatever happened to or why doesn’t this artist ever release any new music Tuesday today. It’s almost like the “Walking Dead” in the music industry right now.  I kid, but seriously, look out!

Musical Couples

This week I’m going to see Patty Griffin and the very next day, Robert Plant.  Both have off days on the day their significant other is playing so I’m hoping they’ll each make a cameo at their partner’s show.  It’s a great musical couple and in salute to this couple I’m listing a few other […]
