Friday's Playlist: Children of Jimi

Today marks a pretty sad anniversary: it's been exactly a half century since Jimi Hendrix died. Jimi was arguably the most influential guitarist, well, ever really. His contribution to the musical lexicon is immeasurable and goes way beyond the realm of rock. His appeal also transcends generations, instruments, gender and race. Because Jimi's music didn't just break down musical walls: it broke down racial ones, social ones. Face it, Jimi's music was woke. Cross-breeding music to fight cross-burning mentalities.

R.I.P. Frederick Nathaniel "Toots" Hibbert

Extremely sad news: one of the originators of reggae has died at the age of 77 from complications of COVID-19. This shitty virus has wreaked havoc everywhere on the planet and has already taken some beloved musicians like John Prine, Manu Dibango, Dave Greenfield of the Stranglers, Trini Lopez, Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne, and many more.

UPCOMING GIGS! Tentatively...



Although much of the world is still in the throes of a deadly pandemic and a second wave is due to hit our neck of the woods in the fall at the very latest or even as early as this summer according to some reports, some concerts are being scheduled (or re-scheduled) and hopefully we'll be able to hit some of them. It's hard to believe it's been six months since we last attended a rock show.



Our fingers are crossed, and so are our toes. Maybe real life, normal life, is on its way back. Because, you know, this virtual concert thing, it's better than nothing, but it's not exactly cutting it. Here are the concerts we'll be hitting, providing they actually happen.

The government has recently issued an extension of the ban on events of more than 5000 people, so everything is up in the air... Obviously, it's more important to stay safe. So let's wait this thing out. Don't forget to wash your hands and wear a fucking mask, people.
