There is no doubt about it—I got right after it last night in honor of one of my favorite holidays. Thank you to all the talented musicians who provided me with an excellent soundtrack to an excellent All Hallows Eve. Per usual, there’s a lot of great things happening across town and beyond so let’s check out what this Tuesday is all about, shall we? Fun tunes to take in from Fat Knuckle Freddy at Blue, Travis James Humphrey at Gritty’s, an Open Mic with Uke n’ Smile at Sea Dog Brewing Company and more.
