It only took me 32 weeks for the Shameless Self Promotion to spread to the header image, friends. Shouts out to all my Clinny D readers out there cuz I am IN IT right now. Sorry if the blurbs are glum this week. Taking heart in seeing that as of this writing there are 99 recipients of this list, which is about 97 more than I expected 32 weeks ago. Will November bring trip digits? Forward to a friend and let everyone know about my mental health. And also about the shows! This is about shows, not me. Good gravy I hope everyone has enough sense to skip the intro this week.
Upcoming show tips, reviews or pics from last week's shows, questions, comments, and concerns go to firstname.lastname@example.org
Maybe this was forwarded to you and you want to subscribe? THIS IS THE LINK FOR THAT!
I love you! Get to the gig!
