Some great new arrivals tonight from Eva Be, The Crucialites, Fågel Roc, Autorickshaw, Daddy Rings, and Dub Spencer Trance Hill. Then there was the fresher-than-fresh tracks from the upcoming Lee Perry album as originally broadcast on Jak Maken Zasial’s More Than Reggae radio program on Radio Poland. Added to this was a nice set from Half Pint to celebrate his May 4 show in Minneapolis. And that’s just a start…

Lots of new music this week…over half the songs I played were from new releases.

I’m working on a couple of events I’d like to tell you about.

On Saturday, May 17th I’ve been given 3 slots to book at the 331 Club’s outdoor stage for Art-A-Whirl. So, I booked 3 roots groups: The Front Porch Swingin’ Liquor Pigs, Al Subola’s Rockabilly Quartet, and Matt Pudas Friends.
The event lasts all-day and into the night. For a full lineup, go to: 331 Club Dot COm.

Then, on Friday, May 23rd I’ve put together another edition of the 416 Club at The Cedar Cultural Center. For that, I’ve booked Molly Maher Her Disbelievers, Erik Koskonin, and Matt Pudas Friends. Another great night of roots/americana on the wonderful Cedar stage.

I hope to see you at either or both of these events. If people show up, they’ll let me keep booking. Otherwise, adios senor jackson.
