Music This Week April 5th thru April 11th

Hey there,
I’M BACK!!!
I ran away from home in late Oct. I was tired of watching so many trees and plants die from the drought. I did stop at Suwanee and caught Hulaween (still to be posted). I then went to stay with a friend in Tiitusville, FL. 20.4 miles from the nude beach at Canaveral National Seashore. I could stand in her front yard a watch the rockets launch from Kennedy Space Center. I left there the middle  of Jan for a week on Big Pine Key. I then went to a naturists resort outside West Palm Beach until I returned last week. I finally understand snowbirds.I believe I have become one.
We have They Only Come Out At Night, a fundraiser for the 39th Athens Human Rights Festival at 8 pm April 15th at The Office Lounge. Please come out and join us for a fantastic evening with Ricky Simone, Reverend Conner Tribble and Kellie Devine and the Athens Showgirl Cabaret.
