Max's on Main: Unfortunately, the gig was cancelled as the owners had the unenviable task of funding repairs to the restaurant. While we may have drawn the short straw on the performance date, Rich, Harvey and Crew lost nearly two weeks of revenue, on top of the repair cost. Here's to you, Rich, Harvey and Crew! Good luck and godspeed and we'll see you next month.

Angry Orchard: Always a sublime time, the DUO spent a blustery day at this exceptional establishment inside by the bar. Got to see some new faces, speak with old fans, and, more importantly, get paid to stay warm.
