The dog days of summer? August is coming but there are still some great shows coming in July. The great folks at Listen Live Music are hosting their Open Mic again this week if you want to try your chops at an Open Mic this is the one you need to go to. I can’t say enough about how great these folks are and their mission. And while I’m ranting about cool places, I got to see my friends The Bill Koss Combo at the band shell in Sanatoga – YOU NEED TO CHECK THIS OUT! Take a chair and grab a listen. GREAT venue. To my friend Andy, take notice I remembered to put Two Shoes back in. Stock up on ice and your favorite beverage and get out there and JAM!

Do you want to see your band or venue listed here at WTIM send an email to tdietterick@21st-centurymedia.com with the particulars (at least 2 weeks in advance) and we’ll get it out there.
