Piercing Ken Thoughts: Sadly, I’ve never been to this particular event before but did learn about it from our friends over at the The Worley Gig who’ve covered it a number of times over the years. One of my plans for this year before it all came crashing down was to explore it at long last and bring you the inside scoop. Let’s hope that the Spring Show that is listed on their website will end up happening because if it is I will do my best to be there as well. See you next time. Feel free to chime in if you were planning on this one as I’d love to hear from you.
