Saving Summer & Brighton Concert in August

2019 July 28
by Mike Vial

My summer gig calendar is sparse, but I’m busy here in Dixboro! I’m job hunting for a new teaching position, and I’m chasing my kids around parks, library story times, and museums while my wife works on writing assignments.

I also have been saving weekends to spend time with friends and family during the summer break. During my 11 years of playing music professionally, I’ve often missed family reunions, friends’ hangouts, and concerts because I was always working on the weekends.

This summer, I vowed to open up my weekends for real vacations, ones without guitar cases in the trunk! My college friends and I celebrated 20 years of friendship with a hiking trip to the Rocky Mountains last week. My dad and I also went to see Junior Brown at the Ark.

In August, I have two gigs left this summer–my monthly residency at mash (8/24) and one concert in Brighton (8/17).

Tom from After Blue and I met at 20 Front Theater a few months ago, and he kindly asked me if I’d join their songwriter scramble in August 2019 at the new Brighton Coffeehouse & Theater.

The show, a Nashville style round, is on August 17. No cover at the door! (Acoustic Ash will be dominating the stage, and the rest of us will be sprinting to keep up with her.)
