It appears the Scourge of the Sea/Petticoat, Petticoat show I expected in early January is in limbo because they need a venue for January 9. If you can help them out, drop 'em a line on MySpace. They're still gonna be at Tasty World in Athens on January 10.
I'm also told that The Clutters will be here in February (probably at The EARL), but the details aren't firm. I drove (well, rode) all the way to Nashville to see them -- those guys/gals are killer.
I'm sure I missed umpteen things. Feel free to point them out.
