Anyone taking the time to gaze at the recent night sky has been (and will be) treated to a pretty amazing display. In Chicago the combination of warm weather, clear skies and the position of the planets has made for spectacular views.

In the early evening Geneva sky, Venus and Jupiter are shining very brightly toward the west with Venus as bright as I have ever remembered witnessing her. So intense that she is blocking the star field around her for some distance.  Turn 180 degrees to the east look a little higher and Mars is easily seen blazing bright red. Wait just a while and Saturn will rise from the east as Venus and Jupiter sets in the west. On or about the 25th of March a sliver of a crescent moon will join the dance with Venus and Jupiter in a pretty awesome display.

So take a few minutes if you can. Take a look and Let It Shine. We think you'll enjoy it.

Weather is gradually getting warmer. Days are slowly getting longer. Up here in the Midwest we go to daylight savings time this weekend. The robins are even already back and staking out territory for their annual mating rituals. All this points to the oncoming approach of the Spring/Summer music fest season.

It's nearing the time for the tribe to gather, renew old friendships, begin new ones and the time to celebrate the joy and kinship of music. Time to dance and twirl. Time to be rained on yet keep smiling. Time to help your neighbors get their cook fires started and dive into a burrito. Time to renew your hope for humankind thru art and music. 

Here's a few Midwest shows to consider in order to release your inner hippie:
