Angel Island was a lovely place to be this past weekend. It started off foggy all three days but by noon the sun was shining and the music was playing. One of our favorite bands “The Courtney Janes” came back for a repeat performance and on Monday “The Brother’s Comatose” played for the first time on Angel Island to a packed crowd at the Cove Cantina. Check out our facebook page for a sample of the sound.
