    This is a new-ish club with a good reputation among musicians because they promote each and every show and stream live. We're looking for a residency, so please come out for this one, one hour beginning at 10pm on a Tuesday night and help us get something regular going here in the 'hood. Excellent bar and drink specials every night. Show starts at 10 and ends 10:45....We will be passing the hat! $10 donation strongly encouraged.

Q: I couldn't reply to your replay because you haven't fanned me back, so this isn't really a question. Yes I was already thinking I might catch you at Barb's. The only problem might be that it's the day before the Fourth, so I might have to wait for your August gig. Meanwhile, I'd be honored if you stopped by to listen to a couple of my songs. Beneath the obvious stylistic differences, I think we have something in common.
A: I didn't realize I had to fan you back in order to write you; I don't know where in the ether my message to you went. I absolutely agree that we have sensibilities in common, esp the need for literate songs! Keep me posted. All best, Janine
