seriously considering pointing the emblem and grille in a southward direction and seeing this show
*if it happens*

anybody else thinking about doing this?
already bought tickets for the 7/4 show and crossing your fingers extra hard?

great to see and hear...a bit of a problem on my end at the beginning (streamed to you tube on my tv) but it cleared up quickly...high point for me was Dave's dedication of "Just A Man" to Peter Green...

Live in Boston or whatever the live album or boot was called was my introduction to Green, Kirwan, and Spencer, whoa. Read lots of stories today and put on some early Fleetwood Mac as I packed to head to the woods for a bit of respite before my wife the teacher returns to teaching and school.

Hope all are well, safe and continue to be so

One venue is town has one or two shows scheduled per week, but the bigger names keep canceling. Todd Snider is the biggest name in August that hasn't canceled but I'm not holding my breath. (No pun intended.)

Yeah, a lot of small and mid-size venues are going to close, but if/when normalcy returns, they'll open back up with new owners. It's like Lefty's Live Music Emporium on the edge of the Drake University campus. I wouldn't be surprised if they go out of business, but it's been a music venue for probably 30 years and will be again.

Maybe. Some things don’t come back. Music clubs are often labors of love and it can be tough finding folks with that passion. Of course, LiveNation will be happy to swoop in like a vulture after the carnage. On the bright side:
