Support local music

Here's the latest from my friend Sierra Madre Sue:

Believe it or not, I stayed home last Saturday and Sunday! That's right - yours truly - live music addict and social butterfly (I prefer that over barfly) that I am, was stricken with a double dose of cold symptoms and severe back problems. There were 3 or 4 gigs I would have gone to if I could have gotten up off the couch without wincing in pain! I'm still not 100%, and sitting at the computer is not doing me any good, so this week's report will be brief.
Many thanks to my friend Jill for bringing me medication, home-made soup and a back massager, and to Ron & Richard for the beautiful poinsettia, and to Snotty Scotty for the over-the-phone song dedication from the Buc Saturday night!
Hopefully I will be out and about this weekend, especially because all 5 original members of HORSES ON ASTROTURF, pictured here, will be appearing at the ROUTE 66 ROADHOUSE in Duarte (city of my birth) Sat. December 15th. Details below........
