What Shall I See? My One Question for You


My dear wife gave me tickets to any show coming to The Egg as my Valentine's Day present.

So my question: what shall I see, and why? I'll admit that I was leaning toward Emmylou, until her performance was postponed from March 12 until October. (I'm a more immediate gratification kind of guy.) I'd REALLY appreciate your feedback.

And apropos of absolutely nothing, I know this came out last week, but I still love this story: Sports broadcaster traded for animated rabbit. Not so much for the Disney empire, but for the historical completeness.

Loudon. Go see him. I'll be seeing him in Fairfax around that time

My gut instinct says go see Roseanne Cash, but I think that Sonny Landreth show will blow the roof off the egg.

Hi there!
My suggestion for a show at The Egg: Al Kooper.
I bought tickets for that show the same week it was announced! Can't wait.
