The Kaiser Report... Musical happenings for the week of February 6...

After one of the most amazing First Friday's in recent memory my brain is still buzzing from all the sensory overload. Just walking around the galleries at Emergency Arts and then the festival grounds around the 18b Arts District had me buzzing all weekend. Even with cooler temperatures the event was packed with every kind of creative walking around and participating. Now that the week has begun we can carry over the buzz of First Friday with Laraine Kaiser's weekly report of musical happenings about town.

Have a great and culturally filled week!
