Well I've finally decided on Jam Stampede. I had about 9 or 10 decent shows within a 2 hour radius to pick from... and they each had some kind of drawback... either cost, not having someone to hang with, not having a place to crash, having to drive home drunk, or some combination. But last night I found out my best friend Adam will be going with me, and he doesn't drink, so that takes care of both my loneliness AND my DD problem, yay. The Jam Stampede show is the one I kept gravitating to for weeks now, so that's what we picked. Crazy part is, he is NOT a Dead fan, lol, but he says he's into it, god bless him.
Only thing is, it's gonna SNOW... hoping that doesn't foil our plans. If so, then it's movies here at home, or maybe a local show, in which case the choices would be either a) Funktion, which is a very good local rockin funk band, at Stocks On 2nd in Harrisburg, and that's a free show, or b) a Spotus reunion show at Appalachian Brewing Company in Harrisburg for $10... that's a local band I know in name only but I checked them out online and they seem pretty decent.
But HOPEFULLY I'll be at Jam Stampede! By any chance is there anybody else reading this who's gonna be there? Gerald, what are YOU doing for NYE? River Street Jazz Cafe near Wilkes-Barre, Dead/Garcia tunes from 10-2, $10 cover... come on out!
