More Top Secret Dates and Details from Ann Vriend!

Dates and Details

Secret Agent AV heads out to BC again, starting TODAY (Sunday, August 10, 2008) in Duncan.

Ok, we know not everybody on this mailing list live in, say, Duncan, but we never know who’s traveling where and when, and our experience has been: tell everybody, not just the people who live in the towns AV will play be in. Why? Well, much like AV herself, people travel — in fact, it’s quite interesting looking at who signs Ann’s mailing list at her various shows, and what cities and countries come up, other than the one the show is in!
