While I will be spinning tunes solo on Thursday, Amanda will be enjoying the Merle Haggard show down in Santa Barbara. She says she’s going to call in, but I think Bakersfield & Beyond’s Girl Haggard may be a little too busy. Merle’s show is scheduled to begin at 8:00 so I’m sure we’ll hear from her prior to that so she can give us an update from the mosh pit.
With this coming show being on the eve of San Francisco’s Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival, I’ll be playing music from artists who will be appearing during the three days of incredible music down at Golden Gate Park. Some of the great artists who will be performing at Hardly Strictly Blue Grass are Dave Alvin and the Guilty Women, Neko Case, The Knitters… And in case you can’t get to HSB, you can catch Dave Alvin and the Guilty Women at McNear’s Mystic Theater in Petaluma on Friday night and John Doe & The Sadies will be playing on Sunday at Annie’s Social Club at 8 p.m. Way too much great live music this weekend! You’ll be able to get your fix of the great music a day early during Bakersfield & Beyond! Tune in.
