Should be a very cool show. Wish I could be there! So is the train station a functioning station? Will someone sit up against the wall singing about the Southern crossin' the Yellow Dog?

I like the poster too.

I think it'll definitely be a cool show.

The train station is no longer used for active rail service, and probably hasn't been since the 70s or so.  It was completely abandoned and boarded up for a number of years until a local resident got a grant to restore it - maybe about 8 years ago.  This is what it looks like now:



The inside is pretty nice - wood floors and high ceilings...  air conditioned...  I always thought it'd be a nice place for a concert - I guess we'll find out!  The insurance requirements for reserving the station have changed now and while we got a waiver for this current show, having others in the same space may be difficult.  In any event, this will be a good one - worth the trip!

Domestic flights get a half price ticket...  "flying" down the highway gets you the cold, hard stare you probably deserve!   :)

It looks like it is going to be a great show at a great venue, Frank. It's enough to make me relocate back to Joisey, if only for a couple of days!

Unfortunately I'll be there and gone before the 18th. I'll probably get together with Ari at a Chinese restaurant in Philly. Would have been nice to hear and meet Pat, tho'.

Having just spent some time listening in person to Pat Conte play all sorts of material from Cat Iron to Yank Rachell to Blind Lemon to Mississippi fiddle tunes to cowboy songs (!), I can say you'd have to be nuts not to go if you're within two hundred miles of the place. The guy is such a deep well, he's coming out the other side. With Ari on board too, this is a guaranteed great time.

I know some of us will see Ari next week, but for the rest, how'd it go? Highlights? New jokes?

Would love to read a report.
