What a day to play in the subway! We quit just before 4 pm and I hopped the D train to the Bronx, where I park my car at the end of the line.We arrived at 155th St (last stop in Manhattan) the doors opened and then the lights went out. As I was headed to the end of the line I stayed in the car until we heard " it's citywide!".Went upstairs to see scores of cops on 8th Ave but they were there for the famous Rucker basketball tourney across the street. They didn't know much but we all heard the latest word of the extent of the blackout to Canada, detroit and more. Still All I could think is how was I gonna make my 730 big band hit in Briarcliff, up in Westchester. I ended up walking across MaCombs Dam bridge to the Bronx, to the Concourse, where the few buses running were packed to the gills. I had no chance with the bass. I was hoping some musician in an SUV or something would take pity and lift me to my car, but alas. I ended up getting a livery car to my car in the north Bronx. Actually I was lucky. What are the odds the power going out just when we stopped at the station? A young woman who shared the car had been stranded in a tunnel herself and I was thankful I didn't have to carry my bass in those conditions.Plus if we played any longer I would have been stranded at 59th street, at least 15 miles from my car. I'd still be walking. I wonder if any of my NY DB brethren got stuck in the subway with their axe? There's always a few in the system at any given time, I'd like to hear who else had an experience yesterday. Cleveland, Toronto, wassup?
