What an amazing amount of entertainment at our finger tips! Let me say this about that: WTIM friends STORM are kicking off their 2013 concert season at the Bowl Grille (who have in recent months become quite musician friendly), The Bill Koss Combo is making an appearance at Cutillos and Jim Meck is everywhere! And one of our favorite young artists Stephanie Grace will be in Stowe at Saint Gabes appearing on the same bill with Black Hat Boris. St. Gabes will be open to the public for this event! Jefferson Wheelchair is being added to our favorite band name list and, in an eerie coincidence, Jefferson Starship is scheduled to be making a local appearance on the big stages. Here’s another coincidence, three single name bands Rhianna, Jewel and Pink are scheduled (separate shows) this time. I am going to pick Marshall Tucker this week, because I like southern rock (not because Megan threatened to break my arm if I didn’t pick her cousins band Swampdawomp who is playing with the MTB. Okay well maybe it was). Locally there isn’t a clunker out there so anywhere you go you will have a great time. SO JUST GET OUT THERE!

Do you want to see your band or venue listed here at WTIM send and e-mail to tdietterick@journalregister.com with the particulars, at least two weeks in advance, and we’ll get it out there.
