First some news. One of America's greatest living songwriters, the incomparable Butch Hancock has agreed to play live next Friday on The Santa Fe Opry.
That's 10 pm on KSFR, Santa Fe Public Radio, 101.1 FM. It'll stream live on the Web too. Click on the link back there.
Butch is playing two shows Saturday night at The Gig Performance Space. ($29 General Admission. Tickets at Lensic Box Office 505-988-1234.) It's brought to you by Southwest Roots Music, (which this year has moved the Thirsty Ear Festival up to June.)
I've been fooling around with my favorite recent Internet time-waster, Blip.FM. (For this I blame my GaragePunk Hideout pals Kaiser, Martha and Kopper.) It's been cluttering up my Twitter feed and Facebook, but it's pretty cool, providing a direct link to some of the crazy music I like.
So check out my Blip.FM page. Press play on a song you like and when that one's over, the next song on the list will begin. And if you're so inclined, sign up and set up your own station. It's easy as pie and lots of fun.
(By the way, Kaiser and Kooper have two of the most bitchen podcasts in the Free World, RadiOblivion and Savage Kick. Click the links and check those out.)
One of my favorite country artists, Buddy Miller had triple bypass surgery Friday. Reportedly he's recovering well. Here's a news story from The Nashville Tennessean.
We're pulling for ya, Buddy.
