The Mmming Report: Local Music News from Kharlie M

Issue #29 — Saturday, June 23, 2018

Newsletter Late This Month

I’ve delayed this month’s newsletter until I had some definite news to report; the next newsletter will go out during the second week of July as normal.

‘Come On’ for Now; ‘Umm’ Will Wait

The path to Series K has been a rough one, but five new masters are already up on Bandcamp, replacing the older ones. Nearly all live recording is finished for the rest of the Come On, Kharlie M album, and it looks like the album will be finished in time for release on July 13, 2018, at my Friday Local Feature show at Voigt Music Center in Janesville (5:30 to 7:00 pm). The bad news is that the second album, Umm… It’s Me, is now on hold pending the completion of this one. I’ll keep you posted regarding its release, likely a bit later this year.

Madison Show Set for August

I (Kharlie M) will also be playing a show in Madison, at Art In (1444 E Washington Ave), on Thursday, August 23. Time is yet to be determined. Alluvion from Minneapolis will also play.
