A Reputation for Repetition

We’ve said it before (in so many words), so why not again?

Our wacky wintry weather (topic of conversation numero uno), just keeps comin’. Don’t succumb to SAD.* Take advantage of a predicted Friday break in the pervasive precipitation to toast the end of the week with Big Wes Turner’s Trio at the High Noon Saloon. Doors open at 4:30, so punch out early. The "biggest little band in Madland" starts up their "Rockin’ RHYTHM & Swingin’ BLUES" at 5 and goes through to 7 pm.

Many Madisonians depend on the official heralding of “The Weekend” that is heard without fail every Friday (mostly) at 2 pm on WORT’s long-running, highly acclaimed, somewhat notorious giggle-and-snort fest, The Mel & Floyd Show. See that you segue yourselves from there to the High Noon Saloon.

Note: Despite the recent listing in Maximum Ink indicating that this High Noon “Happy Friday” gig was “SOLD OUT”, such is not the case. More on this here.

NoteBig Wes Turner’s Newsletter has an amazing new option: POSTCARDS! Whaaaaa? Yeah, you heard right. Most well-informed Turnerites receive their sporadic action updates via email, but now they can alternately (or additionally) get a scrap of cheap cardboard with information scribbled thereupon... FOR FREE!!! Just ask.

'Nother Note
: BWTN postcards are redeemable for a drink wherever Big Wes Turner’s Trio is found.
