August 25th – 31st: Work Weak

First and for most, let me say in this day and age, I am contented as a cumber to have a steady job with agreeable hours and a paycheck that gets me through the months. That being said, after a summer like this, it’s going to take a bit to get back into the swing of the 9 to 5. Thankfully, just because the daily grind is starting again doesn’t mean the music is stopping.

Hatch Hollow Music Fest was a blast, on and off the stage! Big thank you to Erich and Mary Beth Semelka for having Strangers and Liars down for the third year in a row, and of course, all the other great bands that played. And there was food! All the grilled corn you could eat. Yes please.

Regarding the upcoming week, we’re getting down to the final few Songwriter Sunsets of this year. This week will feature two veteran Erie Songwriters, Mike Rhodes (of “Breaking the Circle”) and Gabe Poland (of “East Clintwood”).

Then this Saturday (August 30th), Strangers and Liars will be returning to The Crossroads Dinor in Edinboro PA. We’ll be playing there from 9pm to Midnight.

It always takes a minute to get back to successfully juggling work and music once the off season ends, but this train will keep moving, so no worries!
