We’ve got you covered with everything you need to know about this weekend in Huntsville, including Jerry Seinfeld, 90s bands, Gallagher, a boot sale, Jeanne Robertson and more…
We catch you up on some important stories from last week AND have an impromptu guest appearance from Straight to Ale co-founder, Bruce Weddendorf:
Women playing music took over downtown, the new HCS superintendent found out she has a tough job in front of her, and the Madison City Council heard from a guy who is not happy with the list of top 10 team names for Madison Baseball.

From last week: Madison Baseball releases it’s list of top 10 names for the new team and voting has begun, Huntsville Animal Shelter is expanding as it works toward becoming a no kill shelter, and a significant anniversary for the city…the Bedroom Intruder Song turns 8!
So many things happening this upcoming weekend in the Rocket City:
Sugarland in concert, buskers downtown, hot dogs and cool cats benefitting the Greater Huntsville Humane Society, a concert for Bearded Warriors at Blue Pants Brewery, music and foot overlooking Huntsville at Burritt on the Mountain, The Boss Baby plays in Big Spring Park, float the Flint with Straight to Ale, Invisible Fest at Campus 805, learn to curl (like the Olympic “sport”), and an Earthquake will hit Huntsville.
Stephanie Weaver and Jim Solomon from Huntsville Art League join us to talk about the great things they’re doing in conjunction with other local groups to develop and support local artists. There’s a lot more to doing that than you might think, and the city is better because of it.
We catch you up on important (but easy to miss) stories from last week that should make you feel good about your city: Moon Day, new kiosks for Huntsville Utilities, and new buses with wifi for the city schools.
