Large, heart-shaped words from Our Norm (Dearly Beleaguered, we are sequestered here today to pay heed to all applicable regulatory bodies – and irregular ones as well…). The end is nigh (long live the end), and it’s been a blost, but there’s still a good chunk of it to mess with before we disbungle. AndContinue reading “Off we go, asunder…(05/25/21)”
We’ll be playing it up on Patty’s Deck on June 5th, 12-2pm, across from Clark Park at 43rd & Baltimore Ave. Compositions of our own composing plus a few selectable coverlings.
