The business of The Holy Moly Drug Store is rolling along, quite rhythmically, and allowing them to think quite vertically…..about what is just above them.
Now the fun bit must begin!
Related to that, Adrian and Carla have recently hosted two events at The Holy Moly.
The first event was The Holy Moly Juke Joint Jam Academy last April during the Juke Joint Festival 2015 weekend. That's when The Holy Moly became an official Juke Joint Festival Nighttime Venue!
The second event Adrian & Carla hosted was a CD launch party for their friend, Heather Crosse (Heavy Suga & The SweeTones), in the new Holy Moly Theatre, during the recent Sunflower River Blues & Gospel Festival weekend. Having music in their new theatre has been wonderful!
Here's Carla's video of Clarksdale's local band, Heavy Suga & the SweeTones, singing about Clarksdale, Mississippi, in Clarksdale's newest theatre/venue, The Holy Moly Theatre:

Less occasionally, Adrian and Carla get to venture out of The Holy Moly Drug Store and into Clarksdale to enjoy other people making music. After the Sunflower River Blues & Gospel Festival, they enjoyed the music of their friends, Jericho Road Show, at the Shacksdale Motel, near the Shack Up Inn.

With the exception of a short trip back to Australia in September, Adrian & Carla will be in Clarksdale, Mississippi, through the middle of November, 2015.
