There’s a lot on this list this week, isn’t there?
Of course there’s no way everything we cover in a given week can fit into one of these posts. Ideally, the following round-up of people, places, events, and other random happenings in music will at least give you an idea of just how hectic it gets around here.
There’s also no way of knowing what the next few days will bring. Maybe it will be as fast-paced and exciting as this one. Or not.
