This week’s featured events:

The HOPE brings Balrog’s Footfall to Laurelin this Sunday at 2pm EDT/7pm UK time.  Their all metal set was a great success on Landroval in February, but they will have a different playlist for this concert.  In other Laurelin concert news, The Brady Badgers will try to take care of the owlfestation on the roof of Stock’s Golden Perch Inn by chasing them away with the music of Bruco Springrock (aka Bruce Springsteen) in a follow-up of their Haunting of the Bridge Inn concert.  Come to the Golden Perch at 2:30pm EDT/7:30pm UK time for this concert open to all races.

For more information on Landroval’s Spring Racing Carnival and Crickhollow’s Rally in Khazad-dûm, both coming up this Saturday, please take a look at our previous standalone posts.  We previewed Green Dragon Friday’s 8th Anniversary warmup party in last week’s post–don’t forget to stop by Laurelin this Friday and next for all of the festivities.
