The WYCE Hat Trick Concert Series has been Extended with one more show with David Mead on Monday June 12th at 7:30pm at the One Trick Pony. Mead is touring in support of his recent release "Tangerine", where much of the material deals with married love.“When I got married," Mead says, "I sort of bought into this model that my parents laid out, assuming that some level of normalcy would accompany it. But it doesn’t. Life gets much weirder, actually.” A Hat will be passed for the benefit of the "Never Give Up" Scholarship Program for M.S. Thanks to Rainbow Music for providing audio assistance and Fountain Hill Bed and Breakfast for providing lodging. The Hat Trick Concert Series is made possible by support from The Cull Group — "where creative marketing meets intelligent design." On the web at "C-U-L-L GROUP DOT COM."
