The holiday season is in full swing but holiday parties like the Atlanta Blues Society one on Sunday are not the only special events this week. Little Ed and The Blues Imperials are in town and so are Squirrel Nut Zippers. But my first choice this week is slightly bittersweet because one of my favorite musicians is moving to Memphis. But he is having one fantastic farewell party pm Saturday!
