Last week of 2011

This year George will not be doing a New Years Eve Special because his show does not normally play on a weekend. This does not mean this week is not a special 'year end' week of shows. Due to the holiday I won't be posting a complete rundown of this week's shows but you can find that information here.

Happy New Year!
