Tony Memmel at Stumpjack tonight

I'm generally not into telling anyone what they should or shouldn't be doing, but in this case I'll make an exception. You really need to be here this Friday night. Singer/songwriter/guitarist Tony Memmel is going to be here at 8pm. Go to Tony's myspace site and check out his music:

His folk music is catchy and cool and excellent enough to warrant lots of enthusiastic applause and a loyal following. But the man plays guitar with one necessity, because he was born with only one complete arm (his right one). Tony is one of those cool stories of a person with talent who didn't let circumstances get in the way of doing what he wanted to do, and doing it excellently.
And the man has a healthy sense of humor too, as witnessed by his promo image above. So yeah, you should come and see Tony perform this Friday. Besides spending an hour or so listening to good folk music (which is always worth it) you might just hit the weekend feeling pretty uplifted and inspired to give your own challenges a swift kick in the crotch.
Performing with Tony will be Connor Sands La Mue. Here's Connor's myspace link:

Every weekend with live music is a fun weekend, that's the truth, but I get the feeling that this is going to be one of those really special weekends where we get to listen to some great new music and make some new friends. Please join us if you can.
