A Quickie - This Week's Shows
Dixie Tavern, MOMS, and Wire and Wood Festival
Skidding in Sideways
Friends! We have all been slowly making our way back to Atlanta. We are riding so high from Suwannee Roots Revival, and we have so much to tell you, but it’s going to take a few days to process everything that just happened and collect our thoughts. For now, we will just say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! To everyone who came down to support us, to everyone who discovered us for the first time this weekend, and to everyone who was cheering us on from home! We can’t wait to share our experience with all of you, and hopefully hear all about yours, too!
This Week’s Shows
It was a long, amazing weekend, and we’re taking care of ourselves tonight, but we’re hitting the ground running tomorrow! We’re throwing a Sloppryland style Roots Retox party tomorrow night at Dixie Tavern in Marietta, GA, so if you couldn’t make it to Roots this year, or you did make it and you’re just not ready for the magic to end, come on out and see us tomorrow from 9 to 12:30!
Friday night, our good friends, Tire Fire and Britton Bass and the Lonely Few, will be rocking Music on Mainstreet in Lilburn, GA. Tire Fire is one of Arrie’s other musical projects. They play some ripping progressive bluegrass. Britton Bass and the Lonely Few are a new folk band out of North GA whose music we really dig. We’ll be out there showing them some love. If you haven’t been to Music on Mainstreet, you’re in for a treat. It’s one of the most charming outdoor venues around and it’s run by the nicest folks we know. Come hang out with us! Doors are at 7.
Saturday, Barb will be playing a solo show at Wire and Wood Festival in Alpharetta, GA. She’s performing from 2 to 3 at Central City Tavern. Tire Fire will be playing Wire and Wood as well. Their set is from 3 to 4 at Truck n Tap.
On Sunday, we will be back at Music on Mainstreet in Lilburn joining a massive lineup of Atlanta musicians as we gather to celebrate the life of our friend and brother, Brandon Marcel Williams. Brandon played drums with almost everybody in town at some point or another over the years. He taught future generations of musicians as part of the staff at Music on Mainstreet. Most of all, he was a kind, laid-back, funny, and loving friend. We miss him terribly. Sunday will be a chance to share our memories and get down the way he would want us to. The event is from 3 to 10 pm. If you knew Brandon, we’d love it if you would bring a picture of him to add to the collection.
Sending love to everyone, tonight.
