Larry Jack’s Magical Music Tour – 12/28/17 – 1/3/18

Happy New Year’s everyone,
This looks like another pretty good weekend of music coming up.  There are plenty of good shows every night, starting on Thursday.  I’m looking forward to finally catching Anna Chandler’s new band, Nancy Druid at El-Rocko.  Friday brings Cranford Hollow back to Barrelhouse South and West End Motel to the Jinx.  Although I have never seen them, I am expecting a good show from the Pink Floyd tribute band, Interstellar Overdrive, at Barrelhouse South on Saturday.  Don’t forget, New Year’s Eve is on Sunday this week.  Due to a stupid loophole in a stupider law, all bars will be able to be open this holiday.  If you are not aware, State Bill 103 allows all bars to be open one designated Sunday per year for alcohol sales.  Luckily, God must be asleep this New Year’s Eve, so they designated this holiday to be open for sinnin’.   Be sure to bundle up if you are heading out this weekend, there’s some cold weather on the way.

PS – Year-end roundup on the way soon.
