Music This Week Aug 1st thru Aug 7th

Hey there,
I haven’t had time to post any new shows for download and probably won’t until after the Olympics are over. I’m a sports junkie, especially the Olympics. I used to be a jock until I became a hippie. UGA actually wanted me to be on the swimming team but I just couldn’t see shaving my legs to go faster. They also wanted me to be on the rifle team but you had to be in ROTC and that definitely wasn’t for me. I was a really strong cyclist but couldn’t afford a competition bike. I did however win silver in individual and gold in team completion in the Inaugural Hippie Olympics but that is something I’ll tell you about in private if you are interested.
Here are some videos I found interesting:

Another full week of great music. Wed I would usually be at Kenosha Kid’s show but I am going to Craig Lieske’s  show with Killick and others. Craig will be doing Wed residency all month @ Flicker.Thurs I haven’t made up my mind, I’m leaning toward Aradhna since I can catch the others 5 bands later. Fri I’m going to  Chronic Funk Circus. Sat is a tough one, I really support everything they do at Girls Rock Athens Showcase but Ike’s show @ Melting Point is hard to pass up and will probably be there. Mon is definitely Big C’s Blues night and I’ll try to catch as much of Carl Lindberg’s show as I can before that. Tues I really want to be at Ike’s show but it seems I’m always missing that to do this email (like I am tonight)! I will try for Timi’s Kite to the Moon show afterwards.
I hope to see y’all at the shows.
Peace and Love,
Kurt
