It’s been a little overdue, and in fact, we forgot to warn you about a couple of key shows last week. Hopefully you caught the Georgia Soul Council at their usual last Saturday of the month at The 51 (at Elliott Street Pub). Of course, they’ll be there again to round out May. The Noot d’ Noot show last friday at the Star Bar was off the chain for sure, and they’ll be back out in their natural habitat for this month’s Kirkwood Spring Fling. I didn’t get to see Cadillac Jones at the Inman Park Fest, as the forecast was too hot and hungover this past Sunday, but I’m sure they ripped it just as they did at the Sweetwater 4/20 fest.
Well, that about covers what we missed or saw in the last week or so, let’s get you up to date with What’s Up with What’s Going Down for the spring and early summer, brought to you by your friends here at The Electric Boogaloo:

I’ll post last week’s playlist (ably handled by Agent45) in a day or so as an addendum to tonight’s playlist. Be sure and tune in at 11pm on wrek 91.1 fm in Atlanta, and streaming at that link a few words back, as we’ll have a New Orleans themed set just in time for Jazz Fest.
That’s all for now. Stay tuned and stay funky, Atlanta!
