Hey all, still Jonesin' for more GJ after Djangofest Northwest?

Then don't forget the 4th New Mexico DjangoFestival in Albuquerque, New Mexico, October 21st-24th, 2010. (Check out poster below)

I've been to all the New Mexico festivals they are fun events with a funky edge. The gigs are usually held in hip local bars so its kinda like having the acts at DFNW/WICA at the old Dog House or right at the Edgecliff. Swing dance fanatics to belly dancers, they're all there. It's a blast attending these shows. Then jam sessions are held in hotel lobbies, in great open parks (with a conjoining Farmer's Market), and wherever people want to pull out their guitars. Saturday morning has a super New Mexico breakfast jam and meet-the-players session. Sunday has an open jam at a large gazebo in historic Old Town Albuquerque. And everything is covered with a health dose New Mexico Green Chile -- some of the best stuff in the world!

Below is some info from the website. I hope some of you can attend!

    Cool poster! If you make stickers of that, would you send me one?

    Not sure we can make it out for this, but I'll ask Jill.
