Music This Week Nov 14th thru Nov 20th

Hey there,
Bear Creek was incredible! Great music, great people, great weather, great place, GREAT TIME! Start saving now so you have no excuse to miss it next year. I hope to have the shows posted by the end of the week(roughly 25 hours of recordings).
Sorry I didn’t get to The HOOT or to Ty’s Solid Gold Country Revival last night. I was back from FL in time but Sunday I picked up my first cold this century (or longer) almost 102 fever. I have an incredible immune system and the fever broke yesterday but didn’t want to take any chances passing it to anyone.
Before I forget again, here is the link to Rebekah Skinner of Spotted Online’s photos from the Dank Sinatra AHRF fundraiser at Terrapin: http://spotted.onlineathens.com/galleries/index.php?id=428153
Here is something I found interesting. It is a real photo but the wording in the article is terrible and reads at first glance as if this isn’t a real picture:
Mark your calendar, Sat night the 17th is the Leonids meteor shower. If you want to see if the Space Station is visible overhead go to http://spotthestation.nasa.gov/ Sign up and they will text of email you with info a few hours before it is visible overhead.
Point to ponder: scientists now identify itching as something as socially contagious as yawning. Itching lights up parts of the brain called the Itch Matrix. This is part of our social fabric like smiling and laughing.  I wonder how many other things humans share that have been lost through lack of utilization and isolation (we increasingly isolate ourselves when we walk down the street with ear buds in and not interacting with others). Hugging is something I’m not going to let die out !!!
Finally, this Thurs Nov 15th the GA Climate Change Coalition is participating in the  24 Hours of Reality: The Dirty Weather Report. Al Gore’s second annual event for the Climate Reality Project. There will be live streaming of the final  segment of this year’s project from 6-8:30 PM at New Earth Music Hall . Carl Lindberg will play from 9-10pm and more TBA.

I may not make it out Wed but if I do I’ll go to Modern Skirts. Thurs I’ll start at Rachel O’Neal’s show (if there is time I will try to catch some of Kenosha Kid). then to GATH for EPS and P-Groove BTW I recorded the P-Groove set at Bear Creek. I’ll definitely go to Snap! after P-Groove.Fri I’ll start at Hendershot’s and catch as much as I can before going to Sweet Knievel, I’ll see if The Woodgrains is still playing after that. Sat I’d love to catch the Musicsmiths and String Theory but 8am and I don’t work well. I will try for the Terrapin show before heading to The Other Brothers Band and finish with Lazy Locomotive.On Sun as always if you are looking for Irish/folk music go to the Globe at 4pm or for Blues go to Ten Pins at 7:30. I’m not planning on going to anything else until Tues for Fester Hagood’s Confessional.
I hope to see y’all at the shows.
Peace and Love,
Kurt
