I am back in full force. Thanks so much to all of you who came to my shows this weekend. I am sorry I didn’t get a lot of time to talk afterwards. Family and itchy polyester prevented me from having intelligent conversations! Lots of great stuff going on in this week before SXSW. I know I put out this Party Train but when it comes to music, I definitely fall more into the old favorites than the new discoveries category. If there is a band that is absolutely must see, email me & I’ll add it to the train!
Yours in “how can I even decide?”,
Kelly Stocker
