Happy summer?

lastly, i want to say, that if you love live music, besides buying the tickets and the merch, the best way to show your support is to get vaccinated, wear a mask, do your bit... 
i stand by First Ave's new policy to show proof of vaccinations or a negative Covid test within keeps us ALL an artist i felt so relieved by this... 
i don't want to go back to live streaming so if we all do our bit we can keep on enjoying live music with friends and family! 

ok, that's about it for now...stay safe out there, love each other, take care of each other by gettin' yer shot, and wear a damn mask...again.
