Not Normal

The normally voluble Mr. McMusic bites his tongue about the evils of the internet and smart-phone addiction (hypocrisy noted because, yes, after all, where are we right now?) and bides his time, this time anyway, leaving you with less to read and more to do. Start by doing the following: follow the steps below.

Step One: Read the McMusical Calendar.
Step Two: Get off your butt and attend one of the listed events, or several of them, or all of them. None of them require contact with, or payment to, the Digital Overlords of Hyperconnectivity (DOH).

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.
