Plans for the weekend?
Not sure yet how to spend your weekend? For Saturday, January 18, 2014, the weatherman has cold temperatures and snow for us – the Mountain State Brewing Company in McHenry, MD offers a cozier alternative: From 1 to 4pm Scott Alexander will perform at the Brewery. His music is described as “… nonrepetitive pop. His music is truly unique in the way it avoids verse-chorus repetitive structures, while employing catchy melodies and witty lyrics that evolve naturally through each song”. . . .
