First Stop Friday: The Blueflowers and Woodman

Next Friday, the library will host another First Stop Friday show. This time The Blueflowers and Woodman will grace the "stage".

It took some reminding, but the upcoming show represents the 1 year anniversary of First Stop Friday. There was a big gap, to be sure, but it's hard to believe I've been doing this for a year. In a lot of ways, it feels longer, because the idea percolated for awhile, and there were some special events that included music which I organized. I hope that next September, I'll be looking back on a full year's worth of bands. As it is, I'm marveling at the talent I've had walk, stumble under the load of an amp and stride through the library's door to play music for free in what many consider to be an odd venue. Thank you bands of Michigan for being open to new things, amazingly generous and so so talented. I could do this thing for 50 years and always be surprised and astounded by what I hear from musicians in this area. Here's to another year!
