Birthdays & Events for February 13th

I probably won't be posting any music during the weekend. My heating in my apt isn't working and meanwhile it's the coldest weekend all winter (in fact tomorrow is going to be a record-breaker, trumping a winter day in 1906 when it was -2 degrees F). So, staying with the parents for the time being.
