While it hurt me to take Darwin’s out of the lineup since it has closed, there is still a lot of great blues this weekend, some in unusual places for this report. So wherever you are in the Metro area, you should be able to find a show you will love! Check it out!
And Happy Mother’s Day to all the Moms out there!
