Local Music Monday

We started Local Music Monday back up for locals to share videos and photos of local bands and musicians. We were doing it weekly but participation kind of died down after a few weeks. Some asked about resuming it though, so we decided to do it the first Monday of the month and started that December. The most recent one was Monday, January 7th. The next one will be Monday, February 4th.

Here are some of our previous ones (in reverse chronological order). There are many genres on here, so scroll around until you find one you like. You might find something new today.

January 7th, 2019: I posted up about it the Friday before to see if people wanted to continue it, and the response was positive as people started posting theirs then.
