Willie at the 400 reminder . . .

Don't forget! You can get in free to Willie Murphy's Blue Monday between 7 and 8 p.m. at the 400. Later it's $2 or $3 and you can get PBR's for $2. Willie was the first musician ever to play the 400 in the late '70s or early '80s — he played weekly there on Weds and Saturdays, at a piano in the small corner with Tony Glover on harp. I highly recommend people come listen to Willie as he returns to the only remaining music venue of the early West Bank music scene. (Palmer's may get a music license, but that's TBD).

He'll keep playing on with musicians joining the jam over time (they get in free) until midnight or later. If there's good support, Willie will keep on playing. On Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 4 Willier shares the night with "The Beautiful Girls" from Australia. Over the next month, Willie will be playing the same night as John D. Graham from Austin, TX, a regular performer at the Continental there, like Willie's former weekly Viking gig.

Happy to have Willie continue his tradition on the West Bank? Come out and show him and the 400 who are "big fans of Willie" and are happy to have him back.
