ANNOUNCEMENT: Blog Will Be In Suspended Animation, 2011-09-19 thru 2011-09-26

As I said in my previous post, I'll be out of town for about a week, so there won't be any activity around here. In my next post, probably on September 27th, I'll begin a 5- or 6-day roundup of all the days we haven't covered up until now, featuring just the most prominent musicians from all those days.

If all goes as planned, then by the time October 2nd or 3rd rolls around, I should at last be caught up! And then I'll begin again, this time devoting my daily posts to mainly the most notable musicians, with just a few of the more obscure ones mixed in to make things a little more interesting. Until I return, I want to thank all of you from...
