Music This Week Aug 3rd thru Aug 9th

Hey there,
The Cosmic Charlie show at The Foundry was fantastic as was their sets at Jerry Day in Atlanta Both shows are posted. My favorite was their jam during Terrapin Station 2nd set at Foundry, pure magic. I was talking with them about the problems the heat caused with their load in and outs. I bet they are glad they didn’t have to load this: Wintergatan – Marble Machine (music instrument using 2000 marbles. I’ve never seen anything like it).
Or this: This is Wintergatan a Swedish band I just found, they have been around since 2013, Check them out.
Bummed I missed Charlie Fog Band, my car battery died and I couldn’t get to town. I did catch them at Jerry Day.
Saturday is crazy with Girls Rock Athens, Stonerider and River Fest to name a few. I will try for River Quest.
