It's National Poetry Month, and you've got at least 3 other good reasons to consider making a trek to Dripping Springs for Thirty Thursday on April 16th. Venue host Nancy Fierstien said the night will include the music of Austin songwriter Joe Blanda, the poetry of Ernie ("Bard of the Blanco") Lee...and an Open Mike theme about "Open Carry on Campus." It all begins at 7 p.m. in the ranch house at DS Ranch Park, 1042 Event Center Drive off RR 12. Free refreshments come with the package deal. Call 512-858-2024 for more info.
Bonus surprise for Thirsty Thursday. Songwriter Ron Kewin, one of our Thirsty Thursday regulars from Round Rock, just sent me this note:
"I have finished the Butterfly song based on your poem "What A Difference This Day Makes" - would you like to review it and approve it - or do you want me to play it at the next Thirsty Thursday and surprise you?" What an honor!!
