Hardly Strictly Bluegrass - Saturday & Sunday, 10/3 & 10/4

Woo hoo, the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass schedule has been announced! So here's what I'd like to do... I'm going to skip Friday, but I'd like to show up early and spend the day on Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday I definitely want to see The Old 97's so I'd like to camp out at the Towers of Gold Stage, where they'll be playing at 3:30. Okkervil River is also playing that stage at 1:35. I'll probably ramble over to the Banjo Stage at 2:40 to see Steve Martin too.

On Sunday I want to camp at the Star Stage where Neko Case is playing at 5:20. Elvis Perkins in Dearland is also playing that stage at 11:40. I'd also love to check out Billy Bragg, Robin Hitchcock, and Aimee Mann on Sunday.

So last year I showed up at around 9:30 in the morning. While it was really early, it was totally worth it to get a great spot, relax, eat, drink and wander around before the crowds pour in. Jan has volunteered to join me early on Sunday, so I'd love it if someone would join me early on Saturday too. Let me know if you're going and would like to camp out with me at all!

Opera at the Ballpark - Saturday, September 19th

I'm joining Julie and her friends to go to the free SF Opera simulcast at AT&T Park Saturday night. The opera, Verdi's Il Trovatore, is being performed live at the opera house and simulcast into AT&T Park. Entrance is free, but you can get in early for a better seat if you RSVP here.

Think about it... watching opera while eating a hot dog and drinking a beer ;-) You know the drill, hit me up if you'd like to join me.
