Music This Week Nov 4th thru Nov 10th

Hey there,
I hope y’all had a safe, fun Halloween and Wild Rumpus. Hulaween was ridiculous. The largest crowd ever at Suwanee Music Park and the largest String Cheese Incident ever played for. If you were at Wanee with ABB and WSP, think about half as many people again. It was crazy. Most of the people dressed up making it one of the most colorful festivals as well. The really great news is that SCI will be back next year at Suwanee.
I will try to post more on Hulaween next week. My favorites were Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Dumpstaphunk, Lettuce and Bath Salt Zombies. I will be posting them asap.
BTW this is twice in two weeks I leave Florida’s 85 – 90 degree temps and come back to winter in GA. I don’t like it. Nipples should be erect due to arousal not temperature.
