Music This Week March 6th thru 12th

Hey there,
Sorry this is late, I was 10-15 min from finishing yesterday when a storm took out  the electricity and I lost everything so starting over now.
Thank you, thank you, thank you to Jay Braver at http://jaybraver.com/ for his help  with the website. Jay builds websites and does music videos so if you need  either I highly recommend him. Please check out new look to website and let  me know what you think. I made the border from something very special to me,  know what it is? A lot of the changes Jay helped me with aren’t evident yet. I  will be adding pages where musicians can advertise for other musicians to play  with, a page to buy, sell or swap equipment or services and a few more pages  TBA.
I now have another recorder, a Zoom H1 (still only have 2 working as second  H2 was knocked over and broken for the 3rd time last Fri. Never underestimate the  power of alcohol). If you are interested in helping me record please let me  know.
I will be sending out the info on the Battle of the Bands for the 35th Athens  Human Rights Festival coming up April 27th at Nuci’s Space. There are two  slots avaviable to play on stage at the festival which is on May 4th & 5th. I  have the AHRF committee meeting on Thurs so should have info out by Fri.
Reminder: Artwork for the logo for the AHRF due Mar 14th.
Lots of great music this week and as always it causes me scheduling problems.  At the end of my emails I always put my planned itenerary, if there is a show I’m not  attending that you would like recorded let me know and you can use my second  recorder.
My Don’t Miss of the week is Cosmic Charlie at GATH Fri.
Music recommendations:
Last night’s lost email had Joe Cat and Fester Hagood’s shows listed for last night  as I missed them in my email last week but that is now moot.
