On June 19th I was able to sneak away long away enough to see Crash Landfall at Kickin. Anytime I go to Kickin it is always fun. It has to be one my truly favorite venues. No matter who you are, you just feel so welcomed and among friends there. So I hung around there for a couple of events and saw some performers that I have not seen in a while....after Crash I saw Freddy Mergatroid.

As things slowed down and I was back home again, I got some time to go venue hopping yesterday.
Instead of looking for performers I hid not heard before, I decided to go visit old friends, Tristyn Homewood was on the event calendar. For those of you that have not heard him, Tristyn is an amazing performer. He is very versatile. Many will think just country, but I have heard him do so much. I went off to see Tristyn at Billy Bob's. Tristyn has a very special place with me, he was the one person that stepped right up and offered to help with making last years Stand Up 2 Cancer kiosks. Chuckles just wait until he hears what I have in mind this year.

If you know me...you know my blog and venue hopping would not be complete without a visit to one of Max's shows. This time I saw him at After Hours on Idle Rogue. He put on a great show and at the same time I saw so many old friends, it felt like a reunion...it was wonderful to see so many old friends.

Today I went to The Lemonrock Cafe to hear a performer I had not heard before and he was running late......I got to hear Strum Diesel improvise holding down the fort. I was completely blown away by Strum and have every intention of watching for him more often. Redhawk did make it in and I was glad I got a chance to hear him, this is one trip that was so worth it.

From there I went on to Industry to hear Andi Huet, what a beautiful voice. She has the voice that one could listen to all night long. I am in complete awe....if you have not heard her, you should watch those events and run to see her.

Also many of you know how very much I miss the venue, so though I can't have a regular venue right now I will be doing another special event this fall. Well maybe a few of them....the holidays will also bring them. Keep your eye out for them.
