  1. Kate and the Retreads (roots country and rock) are appearing tonight at a street festival in Columbus known as THE JAM. Apparently it's in the same block as the famed LOFT music club. We go on at 9pm and (in)famous pedal steel player Mark VanAllen will be with us. Here's the blurb for the fest:

    There's a new music festival in Uptown Columbus! The Jam will be held October 10
    & 11 from 6:00-10:00pm in the 1000 block of Broadway and will play host to
    headlining acts such as BlackHawk, Toni Lynn Washington, Union Drag, Janah, and
    local favorites like the Chattahoochee Pine Beatles and jazz sax player Kevin
    Vannoy. The event is open to all ages and admission is free to the street
    stages. Those 21 and older who want to go into the clubs or buy beer will need a
    $5 wristband. For more information, call (706) 596.8141.
    Open: 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM
