Becky's Schedule of Cool Music Stuff - August 2000

Hi everyone,

Lots and lots of festivals this summer! I wish I could be everywhere at once,
so I wouldn't miss a thing. Wherever you are, there's certain to be a good
show this month - be sure to catch some live goodness.

I would like to welcome Marc Brownstein back to the Disco Biscuits. The former
bassist has rejoined the band, much to my delight. :)

Remember, you can buy CDs right from my website, through World Party Music
and the Homegrown Music Network. All purchases help to keep the site up and
running! Check it out - www.coolmusicstuff.com, click on Buy Music!

Remember that all dates are subject to change, so please call first!! And
hey, if you get to talk to any of the bands...tell 'em Becky sent ya!! :)

I'll see ya at the shows!

Peace and hugs,
Becky :)
