What a week of Music. Wednesday's homegrown show was hosted by poet/singer songwriter acoustic Tuma. Chris invited some guest players which made for a fun night.
The weekend brought bands from all over the country starting with the Cosmosonics from Pittsburgh on Friday. I've seen this band go through some changes over the past few years, and I think this is the best line up yet. Lucky Numbers opened the show. The band includes Whammer Jammer Derek, and my Mental Pause sista Christine, along with Jim and Dino they rocked Verlie's once again.
Saturday Burden of Proof from LA rolled into town. These guys were tight, and had great harmonies.

The past week brought a host of fabulous music starting with the Gothfather's new band Quadraphonic Desperation on Wednesday. QD is the best incarnation of this band yet. Also on the bill was Glass Audry. A female singer songwriter joined by a drummer on a few. Friday was the Verlie's debut of my old friend Tom Brady doing a solo acoustic show.
