I'll be up in the balcony in the Wilbur Theater in Boston kicking back, listening to the man for the first time in 31 years.
I've just listened to some of my favorite selections on the attached widget to Mr. Hunter's website and his eerie guitar work never ceases to bring me around.
How strange is it that Jerry Garcia and this guy hooked-up, for all of us?
(All you folks out West, I hope you get some shows and that he isn't testing ticket sales in the core of Deadland. I sure would love to hear him in some place like the Wilma Theater in Missoula that would surely sell out. I'm sure there is a whole arc of places right across the Northwest down to Arcata that would love to host Mr. Hunter.)
don't forget Rum Runners
wish he'd come to Europe :)
so sorry about your DC show!
Bob-o: Really you're only doing shows in the East?
Man, Arizona is really nice - or will be - from mid-October to Memorial Day.
I'm too old to know the best venues around here other than the Rhythm Room and Crescent Ballroom, both close to my house in downtown Phoenix.
If ya can't make it, well too bad. Catch ya on the flip side.
I had great seats and was really bummed to see Mr. Hunter skipping out on the Nation's capital. What happened? I feel like a jilted lover.
There is a great little place in Alexandria called the Birchmere that treats their talent right. Hook us up with a show there Hunter!
After pulling front-row seats, was unbelievably psyched to see the Man but then got an email saying it was cancelled. He was supposed to play at Lisner Auditorium on the campus of GW on 10/3 but looks like He's Gone....to CT!!!
until the Boston show.
