In an entry entitled It’s official: No more Big Spring Jam in Huntsville and posted on Tuesday, March 23, 2010, I predicted the demise of Big Spring Jam.
I sure hated to write that entry, just as much as I hate to write this entry.

Huntsville City officials kill profitable entertainment venue – Can’t Fit 3 Stages –
