Notes gleaned from monotoring social media:
→ Bobbie Lancaster and Madison's Margo Watkins are inching nearer to sending their a children's book to print. Margo is contributing illustrations to Lancaster's writing - her first kids story to get published. It will be a busy summer for the Bloomington roots/Americana musician, as Lancaster will also release a live album and go into the studio to cut her second solo record.
→ Otis Gibbs wrote on Facebook that his "Tallahassee gig came to a screeching halt when I admitted my long held belief that 'if Walmart was a state, they'd call it Florida.' Maybe it would have been better if I kept that one to myself." He also wrote "I guess I still love oranges and Tom Petty", so maybe that can serve as an olive branch to the Sunshine State.
No upcoming Indiana dates for T&SC, but there is an easy road trip awaiting if you want to see them play a 12:30pm afternoon show at a festival in Chillicothe, Illinois (not far from Peoria) on May 28. The Illinois festival, called Summer Camp, is a three-day festival will also feature Indiana band Rev. Peyton and his Big Damn Band at noon on May 27, The Twin Cats an 8pm play a set on May 28. Avett Brothers, Bruce Hornsby and Bela Fleck all play there on the 29th, with dozens of jam bands also in the lineup.
