That is a veritable smorgasbord-orgasbord-orgasbord of rock and roll music my friends. Granted, it goes up against Krannert's Guitar-fest that weekend... but I only really wanted to see Daniel Lanois there anyway.

And I can't wait to see those t-shirts, Seth! "This little Pyggie went to Highdive, this little Pyggie stayed out til 2AM...." We should collaborate!

The traveling blues night at Wall to Wall should be great. Play the cards right and one could leave KCPA after seeing Taj mahal and Rory Block and move right over to the Highdive and catch Living Blue. That would be a great night.

Blurring the boundaries, on Oct. 2, could be really cool, too ( Andy summers and vernon reid will be there.)

Apple is giving 3 workshops on garage band and logic software on Oct. 1, and Lanois is playing afterglow at 10pm that night.

With Pygmalion and wall2wall, it's a great weekend of music.

Yeah, it's going to be one helluva weekend. I think the timing is great for both festivals to go on at the same time, as the crossover exposure will help them both.

hey hey!
as soon as i find out who you are, i'd love to collaborate! if you want to keep your anonymity - that's cool too...
