I'll be at the Saturday show. But I'm going to the Twins game first. Hopefully it doesn't go extra innings because I don't leave baseball games until they are over.

Get there early tonight, people, so you have the privilege of seeing Two Harbors. They are GREAT.

Hope everyone had a great time this past weekend in the Twin Cities. I know I did!

At times, it seemed like a class reunion, I saw so many people that I knew!
Some people, I haven't seen in years! I wish I would've had a chance to chat longer with some of you. And it was nice to meet the kewl kidz from the East Coast (and elsewhere?!) and hang with you up front on the rail on Friday night.

There were a couple people who I ran into on Saturday, I knew you were fanpagers and looked familiar, but I totally spaced out re: your names (real or board handle). I've never been good with that, and my memory's not what it once was. Sorry about that.

Ahh, memories!

I've written a number of board posts on that subject. I still remember relating the story of buying a used car by taking it on a test drive past the Hall. Pretty good sign that was a sale!

I rode my bike out to Hollywood Town Hall last year, It was a little sad to see it in a state of disrepair, there were holes under the eaves that had birds flying in and out.

Maybe we should start a Kickstarter campaign: Save the Hollywood Town Hall!

Not a bad idea! It's a neat building, and of course a part of Jayhawks history!

I think there was talk a few years ago of fans wanting the band to play a show to raise money for the repairs. I don't see that happening, but you'd just hate to see that building crumble.

The last I heard, the building was in dire shape. I haven't been out there in a while - might be worth a trip to check it out.

When Kim, Mike and I went out there, I think that was 2010, there was evidence of leakage creeping down the walls. This was a roof that had been re-shingled some time after the Jayhawks' photo shoot. It would really take a labor of love to save it. Had I the money, I'd do it in a heartbeat. I have a vision for what could be done, but it would take a commitment of some time.
A couple of fundraiser concerts and someone could get a head start---fix the leaks so no further damage occurs inside, and install some ventilation so the moist air can be drawn out to keep it from molding. Finish insulating the walls so the cold winter doesn't instill further condensation that will lead to mold and decay once the weather is warmer.
Someone had done something years back in line of restoring it by putting some iron beams under the floor, and that's a big plus.
