This is a benefit show with a great line-up.  What could be better?

I just need to take a drive by, I’ve heard about these festivals and all the different kinds of Elvis’s that exist, it’ll be good for a laugh if nothing else.

8/11/12      Iris Dement      Country Music Hall of Fame

This is at 11:30 am and the songwriter sessions at the Hall are usually interesting and entertaining.  

8/11/12      Percy Sledge      Franklin Theatre

When A Man Loves a Woman, need I say more?

8/12/12      Dawes      Cannery Ballroom

This is my new favorite band, great guitar driven melodies with a singer who sounds a whole lot like Jackson Browne. This is not a favorite venue at all but this band will be worth it!
