A note from Mike Botello:

Hope you’re having a great summer aside from the extreme heat.

I would like to personally invite you to my end of the summer show in Austin, TX live at The Red Eyed Fly Saturday August 25, 2012 8pm 715 Red River St. 78701 with featured guitarist Tony Smith and Mike Soliz on the drums. Yes you read correctly. Mike Soliz the lead vocalist for Militia and former vocalist for my former band Assalant will be playing drums! Both Tony Smith and Soliz are active members to the heavy metal group out of Austin known as Militia!!! This would be a great way to end the summer spending time with some old friends along with my new ones and rocking out at the same time.

Please check out my website www.botellomusic.com for more information.
Please RSVP if possible and I look forward to seeing you there.

Blessings to you, Mike Botello www.botellomusic.com

Sciarretto talks to us from her own home in New Jersey about how the pandemic is affecting artists, their process of undergoing transition, and how it's going to change music – maybe in great and unexpected ways.
