In Case You Missed It…

So, I was lucky enough to take a much-needed vacation the last couple of weeks, but I wasn’t able to do much of anything in regards to this here blog…even though there seemed to be an abundance of musical going-ons while I was away.

With that said, I figured I should do a little roundup of music news/updates/announcements that caught my eye while I was out on the open road.  My guess is most of this is old news for you, but in case you missed it…
