Yeah.  But I’m not.  But I am.  Master’s level database class and stuff.

Sooo…

Hey!  How has 2017 been treating you?  Real life has my full attention and sleep is fleeting as I organize for Web Year Eleven in my business PARADIGM.  I love that word.  It makes more sense than this Texas Winter, I’ll tell you that.  The sun was like, “ohhh don’t you forget, summer is RIGHT around the corner ready to put that heat on your…” you know the rest.

Ok.  I fixed my jacked public calendar automation for the upcoming events that you can view on the left sidebar.  Please check back often to see all of the great events in and around the San Antonio Metroplex.  That’s automated. Doesn’t need sleep.

The San Antonio Food Bank is desperately in need of volunteers.

Jake Castillo Trio because it is Wednesday and Mr. Castillo liked one of my SoundCloud tunes. Yes. That works.

Merry New Year!

That’s all I asked!
Just pay your talent.  It’s that simple.  Original music is the lifeblood of a township.  Think about Seattle.  Did Nirvana come to mind? Incubus? Thinking of Atlanta or do you immediately go P-Funk…

Wayne Wilson graced the first post of the launch of Where To Go 210.  Imagine my surprise when I found out I worked with his lovely wife!  She gave me a card and a heads up on this week’s San Antonio Fanzine post for date night, Friday December 16th, 2016.

Friday 10/28/2016: The Taking with Down Generation & Remanon

Saturday 11/12/2016: Mickey and the Motorcars with Saints Anlogue

Wednesday 11/16/2016: Rhett Miller (of the The Old 97’s) Acoustic Show.  (That was the band Jennifer Aniston’s character wanted Vince Vaugn’s character to go see when she tried to patch things up in that movie The Break Up.)

Need a Tuesday night release?  Picks…round two.  

It starts at 6:30 but you should plan to get there early.  No outside food and they ask that strollers be kept at a minimum or that families use the umbrella types.

The DoSeum is located at 2800 Broadway, 78209.

Want to see a listing of the clubs and bars in the San Antonio area?  Click the new page link above to see the database, all new and sparkly and pretty!  I’m still adding clubs and will be at it until the wee hours of tomorrow morning so don’t fret if you don’t see your favorite waterin’ hole added.  Or fret and send me a heads up at info@bjdesignsit.com and I’ll be sure to update the database accordingly.  That’s my gift to you this fine first day of summer.

What should you do tonight?  Go gaze at that full moon.  It’s the Summer Solstice and tonight’s lunar display is a once in a lifetime viewing as this Strawberry Moon only coincides with the aforementioned beginning of the season once every 70 years.  Pagans and religious folk alike are gathering at Stonehenge and Sweden is celebrating by feasting throughout the day in honor of the symbolism that includes renewal, fertility and harvest.

I’m providing a database and getting a Big Mac so I think I’m set.
