DownTown July Newsletter
Rock’n’Roll spoken here!
Happy Birthday USA! It’s July and summer has arrived. Time to kick back and hit the beach! Not much else to do since this is being called “The Summer of Retrogrades”. There are 7 planets in retrograde this summer so if you don’t want to go crazy, just chill out for a bit. The good news is that not all seven will be retrograde at one time but there will be 6 and that’s close enough. Mars just went retrograde while Jupiter is going direct next week and then Neptune will go retrograde the following week, with a Mercury retrograde at the end of the month. Fun!
NEW NEWS…Last month we mentioned that DownTown Mystic would have the new “Turn Around and Go” Single coming out this summer. The release date is on Friday July 6. This is the 1st release under the new Sha-La/AWAL/Kobalt Music deal. It’s already available at iTunes, Amazon, Apple and other fine online stores.

More exciting news for DownTown Mystic is coming this summer as Sha-La Music has agreed to join the roster of boutique labels under the European flagship of BMP.

As mentioned last month, we found out that the film, “Monumental” with Jeremy Irons, has been re-titled as “Better Start Running”. It had its World Premiere at the Newport Beach Film Festival last month in Costa Mesa, CA. Next stop is the Flyover Film Festival this month in Louisville, KY where much of the film was shot. We have the song “Fly Like The Wind” in the movie, and even better, the trailer for “Better Start Running” features “Fly Like The Wind” in the last 35 seconds!!
