Music This Week Feb 24th thru Mar 1st

Hey there,
I finally made it to a part of FL that has internet. I tried several times to upload the Fillmore Athens shows but was unsuccessful. I hope to have them up in the next few days. Quick update, still having internet connection problems, I’ll keep trying.
I could get real spoiled with the weather in the Keys, upper 80s lower 90s in the day and upper 60s at night. My luck petered out in Miami. I have driven thousands of miles following shows and always watched the traffic jams in the opposite direction I was going. Today it took nearly 3 hours to cross Miami and it was pouring down rain. Oh well, into each life some rain will fall…
I’m back at the nudist resort until I go to visit Lynn for a few days before AURA, ain’t you glad this isn’t Skype!
Looking forward to AURA next week.
Since this is late that means tomorrow (Thurs)at 6:30 at Nuci’s Space is the AHRF planning committee meeting, y’all please stop by and add you insights, logos, etc. Just a little over two months and there is still a ton of things to do.

Music recommendations:
