Sunday shorts -- live music events today, Sunday Sep 27 2020


To reiterate, you don't see much from us these days because Google, in its hegemony of empire-building, bought a platform that worked great for everyone, then ruined it by making it all about data harvesting while taking away publishing tools for all who used the platform. 

Thus, our information will be infrequent, until we move the Guide to a new platform.

Here are a few cut-and-paste announcements about live music events happening today.


Monterey Jazz Festival tonight, Saturday and Sunday!


Join Berkley Hart on-line today

If you haven't tuned in to one of our live-streaming shows, we hope you will soon. They are a lot of fun, and you can interact with the other viewers in the "Chat Room". Put the show on your Smart TV or watch on your computer, phone, or tablet!

As you know, all our "In-Person" gigs have been cancelled for the last several months. We turned to doing Livestream shows to make a living and deliver the music to you. The shows are free to watch, but the option to tip us will be there for those who are in a position to do so if you are enjoying the music. You can tip at, PayPal ( or Venmo ( A portion of the proceeds goes to the Los Angeles Midnight Mission. We are sustained by the generosity and support of the fans who love the music, and who tip as they are able.

Highly recommended: Online concert today, Sunday, Sep 20 2020

 Rare post, while we look for a new place to move The Guide.

Quick status report, before the concert news...

A new publishing paradigm is now in place for all who communicate using this platform. We told you it was coming, showed you that it was universally unpopular, and shared our efforts to stop it, in common with many who operate other sites on the platform. 

But it happened anyway. So, the newly imposed hegemony of Google's esoterica has disabled the publishing toolbox we used daily here for nearly 13 years.

This platform, once rich with capabilities for fresh original content, changed completely after Google bought the platform and added it to its relentless datamining of everything it can "harvest" and sell about everyone who interacts with any Google site or platform. Thus, our longtime online home has been reduced to a profoundly "un-capable" paste-and-publish pause point for those with tragically short attention spans.

Meaning we are not using it much, as is obvious if you've checked lately for new content. Happily we did get to publish one last REAL edition, on September 2nd -- just hours before Google made it impossible to do that here any more. 

Since then? You see there isn't much, except for simple bits of useful information we can just paste-in. Like this little concert blast. The platform is now a damned mess. It takes forever even to display the words in these sentences when we type them, and any more than three words ahead of what has displayed are simply eaten and disappear.

Sadly, our time here is short. As in, would YOU put up with this?

After we are able to notify you when -- and where -- The Guide moves, and the new online address? Everything here will become a hidden treasure of searchable archives that gradually becomes a curio of music history, becoming as ancient and mysterious as the Sphinx.

The vitality will go with all of us -- writers and readers alike -- to The Guide's NEW home, at whatever NEW site, including feature stories like you are accustomed to finding and things like the tasty news morsel below.

 TODAY, Sunday

5 pm Pacific time...

♪ The ACOUSTIC AMERICANA MUSIC GUIDE endeavors to bring you NEWS – and views of interest to artists everywhere – more specifically to musicians and the creative community and music makers -- and fans of acoustic and Folk-Americana music. That includes both traditional and innovative forms. From the deepest roots to today’s acoustic renaissance, that’s our beat. We provide a wealth of resources, including a HUGE catalog of acoustic-friendly venues (now undergoing a major update), and inside info on FESTIVALS and select performances in Southern California in venues from the monumentally large to the intimately small and cozy. We cover workshops, conferences, and other events for artists and folks in the music industry, and all kinds o’ things in the world of acoustic and Americana and accessible classical music. From washtub bass to musical spoons to oboe to viola to banjo to squeezebox, from Djangostyle to new-fangled-old-time string band music, from sweet Cajun fiddle to bluegrass and pre-bluegrass Appalachian mountain music to all the swamp water roots of the blues and the bright lights of where the music is headed now.
The Acoustic Americana Music Guide. Thanks for sittin' a spell. The cyber porch'll be here anytime you come back from the road.

We'll be back again soon with music news and more "News of the Non-Trumpcentric Universe." (c)

Til we catch ya again on the flip side 
in this new world of the improbable unknown...
