October is a hotbed of activity in the SF Bay Area.  Hardly Strictly Bluegrass was just exactly that, but dang, we missed the Dropkick Murphys.  Then we have the Presidential election coming up and are learning to tread delicately with friends and family who may not think the way we do.  On top of that, the Giants may have a chance at "I-don't-want-to-jinx-it,"  and the Silicon Valley 49ers deserve what they get.  Finally, I will use this spot as a forum to say that our own little town of Brisbane has been in the news lately.  Kind of a David vs. Goliath story. Small town of 4,000 up against deep pocket developers and housing advocates (who knows whose payroll they are on?) who want to build basically a new city and triple Brisbane's population. And now the SF Supervisors are talking about annexing Brisbane to SF!  

But why are we here? What do we care about the most? How do we really feel?  It's all about the music.  And everything I'm talking about will all eventually filter through to our songs.  Actually, some of it already has.  Eventually it'll be on a CD or available for download, or whatever the next technological magic makes possible.  Hey, maybe even an actual record.  That would be something.  I still think in terms of album sides, and there is a concept just aching to get out.  Soon and very soon, we are going to see ...what happens!  Hope to see you soon and very soon, too!
