Hi everyone. I’m Gerard. Some of you might know me as a friend or relative. Others might know me as a guy who started a local music blog that seems to be doing well these days. Or, I might be a former teammate, some random person from high school or college, or someone you’ve otherwise encountered in your travels once or twice. Some of you reading this might not know me at all. In that case, it’s nice to meet you.
If you know me, you probably know that I’ve always been a person with a lot to say.

Hey, everybody. My name is Michael Duck, I am Not For Coltrane, and I have some new information about our Come Together benefit show coming up on April 28.
