189: The Promise of Entertainment

As I recorded this episode, Mayor John Cooper announced a slew of changes for bars and restaurants across the city to help fight off the spread of the COVID-19 “Coronavirus” infection. Ideally, this will lead to fewer enticing events outside of our homes and compel us all to stay inside; a tactic that has proven extremely effective in bringing down the curve of those impacted.

This all comes on the heels of SXSW, nationwide and regional tours, and loads of events around town being cancelled. This is not an insignificant change for artists, musicians and/or anyone in the hospitality industry. Let us all be safe and smart but empathetic to those who simply can’t make ends right now. Reach out, Venmo a friend and let us all support one another.

All that said, this episode continues to be about our great local music scene. We may not be able to go see shows at the moment but there’s no inhibitor to enjoying local music. We’ve got nine new tracks on this episode and they all stem from wonderful releases well worth your time. Give it a listen and dive in further to maximize your quarantine enjoyment.
