I belong to several band mailing lists. One recent email read, ” . . . ownership at the Oasis has changed again. They didn’t bother to tell us. We called to confirm that everything was a go, but found out they are doing Mexican music on Friday and Saturday nights. And charging to get in. Well, last time I checked, we don’t do any Mexican songs. So I guess that won’t work. If you had plans on coming, maybe you can take in a good movie . . . ”
In case anyone still wonders, the voicemail Ana left with Oasis on June 13th remains unreturned.

After 25 years, Big Hoolie’s is no more. Monday, May 19th was the last night for Hooligan’s Pub & Oyster Bar (9555 South Dixie Highway in Pinecrest). Owned by former candidate for Miami-Dade mayor Jay Love, Hooligan’s Pub had live music every Friday and blues jams on Thursdays. This venue will be missed. Its website is still up at http://www.hooliganspub.com.
On Friday, May 23rd, we went to JohnMartin’s to shoot the band “Rock N Roll Circus,” but as the stage lights were broken (confirmed by the band, soundman and our waitress), the stage was too dark for pictures. Still, we did enjoy the music and dinner. We’ll reschedule.
