Well, it seems the summer heat actually beat summer here by several weeks. YAY! Turn on the A.C. and keep reading. WTIM friends Jim Meck, Monkey Bizzness, Special Guest Villians, Levi Bone and Pat Garrett are all delivering cool sounds this time around. AND speaking of Pat Garrett, there is big news from Stausstown! Pat has scheduled one of our favorite acts, Get The Led Out to perform in the Pat Garrett Amphitheater on July 18th! Hearing them indoors is one thing, but, unchained, in the great outdoors, in the shadow of the Blue Mountain!?!? If you’ve never experienced a great live band performing outdoors, THIS is the one to go see. Hope to see more shows scheduled there in the future!

We are spinning headlong into the benefit season and there are no more dedicated fund raising folks than music folks and there are three this time that need mentioning: The Cruise in For a Cure (Car folks are also generous folks!) featuring Magoo will benefit the American Cancer Society, Monkey Bizzness will be invading the Parkesburg VFW in a show to benefit scholarships for the children of fallen military vets and the first annual “Reading Stock” to be held at The Evergreen Club (also one of our favorite outdoor venues) to benefit Keystone Iron Warriors K-9 Hero’s Foundation. All good causes, all good music. Period. 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 two weeks in advance) and we’ll get it out there.
