    Sunday is tough, 2 stages, if I went to see Me'shell would I miss Pat Metheny.

    Hey, Southwest flies to Providence cheap.
    Come up and get a room for Sat night next year.

    Right now I am only going Friday, I have other commitments. The Newport Casino is a really nice outdoor venue, I saw Tony Bennet there last year, he was SWEET! I still have some pics of that show at home on the computer.

    I have been trying to figure out who his doghouse player was.
