Thanks to Michael Greene of Boone, NC - a virtual dinner concert series, online, was organized as a way to help raise money for local restaurants, servers, and musicians in the Boone area that have been unable to work due to the mandatory closures of businesses because of the Coronavirus.  This includes a Go Fund Me page set up to donate a little extra in the case someone can.  Maybe this virtual idea spreads all over as a way to say thank you to someone for serving and entertaining all of us in the past.

We were pleased to learn the news recently that David Childers has a new project! His band the Serpents has a bit of a different sound than his Modern Don Juans, and they've just released an album that was recorded old-school, analog-style titled "Interstate Lullaby" which will be featured during "New Tunes at 2" this Tuesday. They'll debut some new songs live in Studio B. Upcoming shows include the WinterSkunk Music Fest at the Spinning Jenny in Greer on Saturday the 8th, followed by appearances in Boone, Charlotte, NC and more.
