This is a show that was originally scheduled for Oct 2013 and was cancelled due to the government shutdown (sequester). Remember that? We finally re-scheduled.

 

The band is also in Rochester, Syracuse, Philly, Marlboro (NY), and Harrisburg (PA).

 

Full schedule here for those interested: http://organissimo.org/schedule.php

I do remember that. I'm partially to blame. :laugh:

I'll see you there, Jim.

I am doing my very best to get this performance broadcast and streamed live(WPFW 89.3). Yes, pie in the sky but not impossible. We broadcast/streamed live from Blues Alley for the very first time about a month ago and it worked like a charm.

Boston show please!!

Make it happen and I'll pick up the band's bar tab, then after the show we can hit some Irish bars, fight some guys in Southie and finish the night off with a swim in the Charles river.

 

[seriously if any of you get a chance to catch Jim playing live, DO IT.]

Any DC area guys/gals going on Thursday send me a PM so we can hang a little.

I need to put some more faces to names. You know who you are. :laugh:

Unfortunately, my schedule won't allow me to make it down there during that time. :cool:

I called the Smithsonian and the concert is still on. The Kogod Courtyard is enclosed and protected from the elements.

Yes, indeed it is a nice courtyard. That's why it's a popular hangout during lunchtime, especially when its hot outside.

 

Excellent show. The band was smoking hot, and the indoor courtyard was climate controlled. :thu:
