    Just got this finalized today. I will be playing this venue Friday from 6 PM to 8 PM. Those of you in the DFW area, come on by. It is as Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie. It is a arts and crafts/hot air balloon/music festival that runs all weekend. The headliner is Yes.

    This will be an outdoor venue on a large stage. It will be fully backlined. I will have an Ampeg amp, but I don't know what model (hoping SVT CL).

    I will not be able to do a gig report until next Tuesday, because I will be out of town from Saturday through Sunday, and I will not see my friend who will be doing the photos until Monday. And I will try very hard to get some food pics so @dbase will be happy.

    I have to do a bit of traveling for this one. I have to be in Austin Thursday through Sunday, but I'm driving up to Grand Prairie Friday afternoon for the gig, then back to Austin Friday night. Six hours of driving for a two hour gig is not unreasonable, is it?

    Wish me luck.

    Update. It isn't Yes, as I previously and erroneously reported. It is somebody with a name that looks like Yes when the print is very small. :bag:

    Sounds like a great gig. Have a blast! A bit too far from So Cal to make it but I'll be there in spirit. Looking forward to your report.

    Well, the gig didn't happen. The promoters were flakey. We could nerve get them to tell details, so Thursday we backed out.

    That was a quick roller coaster.
    Found this thread.
    Thought "dammit, I missed a chance to meet Dav and hear him play!"
    Then found out that the gig was a bust anyway.

    Sorry it fell through man. :(

    You didn't see my earlier post. We backed out. When you can't get them to tell you what time to be where, tou know it will only go down hill
