RED ALERT! This coming Friday (August 12) is your last chance to hear Tom on bass with The Sparks Band. It’s also a great chance to enjoy a guest appearance by the incomparable Ena M? Will there be swinging and swaying and 60s music (including Motown) playing? Fer sure. 7 to 10pm
Good thing you checked in here, huh? (You can always check the Music Calendar at Isthmus.com. Isthmus is still the go-to source for arts and entertainment goings-on in the greater Madison area.)It's summertime and, sure, there’s lots of stuff going on (see Calendar below) and, yeah, we all want to get going. But, there’s also lots of stuff still going around. Keep your mask handy for crowds and crowded rooms and keep up the good hygiene habits. Wash your hands frequently and stop diggin' around in your skivvies. Let’s help each other stay healthy. Being sick sucks.
