Let's all fete Artie -- but don't tell him yet

By THE BAKERSFIELD CALIFORNIAN

Shhh! It's a secret.

Yet organizers still needed a way to let local musicians and friends know that Bakersfield drummer and music store owner Artie Niesen is turning 60 -- and they're celebrating.

'Surprise' party for Artie Niesen

When: Jam session and potluck starting at 2 p.m. Sunday

Where: Trouts, 805 N. Chester Ave.

A jam session and potluck will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday at Trout's to celebrate Niesen's birthday and his longtime presence in Bakersfield's music scene. The owner of Front Porch Music supposedly doesn't know about his surprise party. And organizers promised to keep him away from today's newspaper.

Good luck with that.
