Freeday, January 16
It is the end of an era. The Idiomatics are a favorite Indie rock band based out of Fredericksburg, and we are sad, sad, SAD to see such group of talented musicians move along. Front man, and main songwriter, Michael Geddes and his rock twang, will be sorely missed. BUT, we take comfort knowing they are moving on still with music! Once a musician, always a musician.
