Looks good so far. This time I won't be working during the week so it should be a go. I'd like to see Aimee Mann. I sure hope Patty gets added to the bill...

See you in October, Arlene! Hopefully I won't be sick this time.

Kevin

This is something I would really like to do.....I know the festival is free but can a person find decent hotels near-by for a decent price & can I stay a little ways away & take the train in? Any info would be welcome....thanks!
