Story/Song @ Casablanca Coffee, April 1

Hey, hey: Please join me at a Nashville reading on Friday, April 1.

Todd Dills with the scoop:

Musicmaker Mike Willis (, good friend of THE2NDHAND in our south co-HQ, proposed an idea not so long ago that now comes to fruition, an evening combining song and story toward a different sort of Music City listening room with interplay between genres.

On the first Friday of April, none other than the grand Fool’s Day, we convene with Willis and other guests for the first such event, a couple hours’ worth of shorts and music from 6:30 p.m. on at Casablanca Coffee in the Gulch. Stop in, enjoy a hot brew or a beer and listen:
