In store for the north state this week, we have a spoken-word night at the Bohemian Art Loft, a two-night engagement from a Miracle Mile Records artist who is also one of the north state’s most beloved guitar instructors, several jazz events from highly-regarded musicians, a number of appearances from local favorites, and a few touring acts making a stop in Redding. It’s going to be a good week.
