Great new talent for ya this Thursday. Mr. Daryll Nulisch, world travelled harmonicat and soloist of the gods is coming in to the Rhummie Thursday night, thanks to Mr. Matt Stubbs, who urged me to get Daryll to join in. Google this guy, I’m tired of gushing! And, as you know, Matt is no slouch in the gootar, either. Not only that, but Mr. w/Chris Anzalone  is coming to beat the skins.


This is how it works for me: you meet one great musician, and he/she/it introduces another one and another one and so on and so forth, etc.,etc. If you miss this night, please don’t kill yourself; he’ll be back. Unless trump wins, in which case we’ll all kill ourselves!
