Westsylvania Jazz & Blues Festival


Some of my Junk Friends have organized a killer music festival here in Junkland—otherwise known as Indiana, PA, home of Edward ‘Cactus Ed” Abbey and Jimmy


“Zuzu Petals” Stewart.  I don’t know jack shiite about Jazz but it sounds pretty good, and there is going to be a lot of it today–by some pretty heavy talents.  So, if you’re in western PA, northern WVa, or Eastern Ohio, I’ve just got this to say:



As an added bonus, if you come, and you can figure out who I am, and you approach me and say, “Are you the Junk Man?” I’ll buy you a beer–or a shot of whiskey.

Lots of great restaurants, pretty trees, old buildings, and a historic main street in our friendly little university town (and the kids are on break, so nobody will vomit on your shoes.).


About JunkChuck

Native, Militant Westsylvanian (the first last best place), laborer, gardener, and literary hobbyist (if by literary you mean "hack"). I've had a bunch of different blogs, probably four, due to a recurring compulsion to start over. This incarnation owes to a desire to dredge up the best entries of the worst little book of hand-scrawled poems I could ever dream of writing, salvageable excerpts from fiction both in progress and long-abandoned. and a smattering of whatever the hell seems to fit at any particular moment. At first blush, I was here just to focus on old, terrible verse, but I reserve the right to include...anything. Maybe everything, certainly my love of pulp novels growing garlic, the Pittsburgh Steelers and howling at the moon--both figuratively and, on rare occasions, literally.

    LMAO! that is almost an offer too good to pass up…but umm WV dropped the “a” a long time ago..just sayin’… 😀

    Now, did they drop the “A” or did they burn it in the street after a football game? Sorry–low blow, but I’m a PItt fan when it comes to WV (but I cheer Mountaineer otherwise). Also of note, there was actually a jazz keyboardist there called “The Junkman,” so things could have turned real confusing. The fest was awesome, though, and I’m not even a jazz fan.
