Music This Week Oct 2nd thru Oct 8th

Hey there,
Last week was a rare one. Kenosha Kid was the only show  I went to and Sloan was there recording so I didn’t record anything. Sloan also recorded the Cover Me and Squat shows which worked out perfectly as I was out of town most of the week. If you haven’t been to Sloan’s site you are missing out of some great music. He is my Yoda, I hope to one day be half as good as he is at recording. He has been doing this since the 90’s and has a fantastic catalogue of music. Check him out at: http://southernshelter.com/
My bummer of the week was the cancellation of the Maharajah Flamenco Trio. I came back to town early just to catch them. Oh well there is always next year.
A relatively light schedule of shows this week but still some great music.The MBUS Battle of the Bands is this week. Sat will be a 12 hour marathon for me. I am a volunteer worker and will record almost all of the North GA Folk festival finishing with breathlanes and Whisper Kiss.
River Whyless has a new video filmed in the sewers beneath the streets of Austin, TX during SXSW: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O0WqyOhiJ-o&feature=player_embedded#t=81
