I’m physically preparing myself for a substantial weekend to ring in the first of October. I did some heavy drumming Sunday as you may know. Well, now I have a damaged joint from that and a a crushed pinky from some stupid folding chairs. I wasn’t thinking about my weekend, which includes several drumming performances with our illustrious dancers. So now I’m working to heal my hands faster than they may otherwise choose. Any advice will be helpful there. I’m using epsom salts so far – hopefully that’ll do the trick. Friday we’re playing at Smokey Springs retirement home. They have been working diligently to play along with some basic rhythms, so we’re looking forward to that integration. Saturday, we play at Art on the Square – a local arts and crafts festival in downtown Gainesville. If you find yourself near Gainesville this Saturday around 3:00, we’d love for you to see us. And then Sunday we’re [supposedly] performing for Pagan Pride in Decatur. I’m a little unsure about that one because Sunday is fast approaching and we still don’t have confirmation or a specific time in which to play. October is typically a busy month for us on all fronts. These few performances this weekend are certainly a sign of things to come. Come and enjoy the sights and sounds if you can!
