What's up guys, I just wanted to give everyone a heads up about the inaugural Chicago Bluegrass & Blues festival, this 11/22 at the historic Congress Theater, all benefiting the Saving Tiny Hearts Societies fight against the country's most common birth defect.
The first 10 folks that hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org will get a pair of tickets mailed to them. We're excited for you to help us spread the word about this righteous endeavor

..." one man gone and another to go..." During Soul Kitchen, Jim morrison shouted out he'd like another cigarette, and good golly, packs of smokes began FLYING up onstage. Setlist was rather short:
Cleveland Public Auditorium
Break On Through
Back Door Man
Five To One
When The Music's Over
Vast Radiant Beach
The Royal Sperm
When The Music's Over
Light My Fire
Jim was dressed in tight black leather pants and was animated throughout the show, not quite as much as Mick Jagger, but still very captivating.
That sounds awesome. What a treat. Sounds like a really grate evening.
Last night in Camden when Ratdog left the stage and ABB came on Bobby joined them for the sweetest version of"I Shall Be Released" it was the best!!! It blew me away Bobby, Warren and Derek acoustic...so sweet :)
Nothing left to do but Smile Smile Smile!!
Excellent idea. Would love to read the thoughts of those that made it to the show. Reading the announcment of the show, builds a kind of magical longing and anticipation,not unlike actually having tickets. The houghts of people that went would be priceless.
that woulda been just lovely.
As for Branford, I didn't know where else to put it, even though it's in the future! Maybe we need a new topic for Other Bands in the Future...
The Crosby Nash show at zellerbach at uc berkeley was beautiful. The wind on the water tour in 1975 with a young Danny Kortchmar, Russel Kunkel, Leeland Sklaar and the inimitable David Lindley. What a show. Carol King and James Taylor joined them. I remember walking around the campus after the show knowing that was something special in a very special place. I was just a puppy at the time and the thrill of trip to the bay area from sacramento for concerts was a magical experiance I have still not gotten over.
ps - That Branford Marsalis shows sounds just wonderful. Should have stayed in sf longer!
