Note of Gratitude to the Mad Ones : 04.01.20

Virtual! (no foolin'!)...

If you tuned in to Mad Swirl Open Mic this past 1st Blursday (aka 04.01.20), you witnessed Mad Swirl first! We’ve hosted in all kinds of places in our 16+ years but never before in the electronic ethers!

We beamed our cyber line-up straight out into the wide world of webs & straight to your screens. HUGE grats to these Mad ones who made our virginal virtual a success:

Thanks to ALL the appreciators who rode the Mad wave from our FB Live feeds! We know you had a choice of what to do with your Blursday (Tiger King!) & you picked to virtually hang out with us! Now more than ever, we need community, we need outlets, we need to create.

Be safe & ’til next 1st Wednesday… may the madness swirl your way!
