Editor’s Note: Welcome to this special Spring Cleaning edition of Weekend Brunch Edition Weekly News and Spotify Playlist via Madness To Creation! Here the weekend is upon us, the sun is shining, the birds are chirping and you get to sleep in! As we have been crazy busy with our work weeks, we are celebrating the weekend!

Well, Madness To Creation is your hookup, holler if you hear us! #SorryScottSteiner It is broken down into the following categories:
- Meat & Taters: This is where the heavy hitters come in to play. The main course if you will. Chances are you’ve heard of this group.
- Light & Fluffy: This is where a band/artist might come off on the lighter side of music. Where you might have a potato pancake with the glass of OJ.
- Libations: Because you can’t wait til lunch or supper so these bands/artists get you in the mood to tailgate and party over brunch.
- On The Side: These bands/artists are brand new and you might put a little on the saucer to give it a try before diving into the meat & taters!
