Early March McNevin shows in SoCal & NoCal!
Friends in SoCal, I'm driving south this morning, in a '92 Cadillac. Her name is Maybelle McGuzzlah. I'll own her for a month or two while I figure out my next touring rig. I've packed a bunch of old cassette tapes for the drive, cuz that's all she's got in her dash. She drives like a dreamboat!
Details below, hope to see some familiar faces!

The "Live A The A-Frame" house concert series includes a potluck and a song swap after, RSVP with Coddy. Coddy & Mary have an amazing house, and if you're a diehard, there are usually 10-15 songwriters swapping tunes in the living room after the show is over. Bring a tune or just your ears and hang out a while. The driveway is steep so if this is a problem, please come early and park up near the house. And if you park on the street, be very sure you leave enough room for a firetruck to get by.
