GOOD NEWS AND BAD NEWS (AND A COOL VIDEO)

First the bad news:

Frogville John informs me there will be no Frogfest this year. That's disappointing because last year's was so much fun for the few of us who attended. But I can't blame him. You blew it, Santa Fe! (For my thoughts on last year's Frogfest CLICK HERE and HERE)

But the good news is that Frogville is hosting three concerts at Santa Fe Brewing Company this summer. The first two already are set:

JUNE 9th 6pm-1am GOSHEN
A CD release party for Goshen's Lioness


7 pm Hundred Year Flood
9 pm Boris & the Saltlicks
11 pm Goshen
with special MC, Joe West
$10.00 at the door

June 27th 7pm-12 am
a double CD release Party for:
ThaMuseMeant's never settle for less and Nathan's In his own worlds


ThaMusueMeant
Nathan Moore
Taarka
This will be the only New Mexico show this year for these guys. I don't have the price on this one yet.

I just spotted this video of Hundred Year Flood doing "Rich Man's War" at last year's Frogfest. It brings back memories of a great show. (If you look at the audience shot near the very last you'll find my pretty face.)

(Speaking of HYF, the group is scheduled to appear on this Sunday’s “Gotta Dance” program on KSFR 90.7 FM, 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Mountain Time. You can hear a stream of the show on the KSFR site.)
