Forums upgraded, spam cleaned out
Wednesday May 3rd, 6:09PM CST
Howdy all, we've had an absolute deluge of automated spam rained down on our little Honky Tonk forums here for the last few months. I'm not sure why they all think we're interested in their stupid offers and sites, but they're sure persistent about telling us that they're out there.
We've finally gotten around to upgrading our forum software, cleaning out the bad messages and putting in some measures to keep them off our little site here. Hope at least a few of you stuck around. Give the updated forums a try.

Considered the "true" Blaze Foley studio album, we recommend this one highly.
Our hearts are with you New Orleans and Gulf coast
Wednesday August 31st, 11:06AM CST updated
New Orleans, where some of this country's best music has been made, and the Mississippi gulf coast have taken a devastating hit. Our thoughts and prayers are with all who are affected.
Please support our neighbors on the coast with contributions, and if you're going to volunteer please do so via an established relief group as they're better equipped to organize and direct resources where they're most needed.
