helloheather and I went to the Montrose Saloon yesterday for an afternoon and evening (noon 'till seven pm) of bluegrass, folk, rock, country, and a little a cappella.
The event was actually a benefit for a local independent radio station: WLUW. http://www.wluw.org/main.cfm. With 100 watts of power, those of us outside the city had never even heard of the station, but really we were there for the music. The lineup sounded interesting, so we went.
Our friend Dan alerted us to the show and we met him and friend/former band-mate Ellen at the bar. The venue was nice, as the Montrose Saloon has a large backyard beer garden with tables and chairs. Between the music, a few food items, and the beer, a great time was had.
Of the artists that played, I'd have to say Cornmeal were my favorite (their energy was spectacular) followed closely by REO Chuckwagon.

The four of us rounded the evening off with a meal at a local pizza/mexican restaurant down the street from the bar. All in all, a great day.
