So...when will the live title be posted?

Please bear in mind that I will be boarding a plane at about (Washington Time) 7pm Tue night and will be out of action and internet access for about 20 hours.

So - if it can go up before 7pm Tue - that would be cool. Or after 7pm Wed - so I don't whinge all weekend about being disadvantaged.

Are we just sort of free-for-alling the practice space since there are 3 rooms?

I'll have some sheets for ppl to organize with but in general this will be an agile-type process.

There is a lot io practice opportunity and a lot of practice space. Think of the rehearsal as a major feature of the event.

Doors open at noon? I can just waltz on in and start smashing drums?

Oh...

That appears a bit contrary to what I have just PM'd to my various helpers:

Well, if you want to hang elsewhere and drink, go right ahead. It's your time to spend. :)

I still have your old Atlanta phone number. I assume that is no longer accurate.

I'm not going to just "hang elsewhere and drink" - you make that sound so sordid. I see myself as an ambassador, and view my trip as an important opportunity to strengthen trans-Pacific relationships. Where are all the single ladies at?

HELLO EVERYONE:

Toby Roktot has had a tour opportunity "popup", and will not be able to attend SF:L. Accordingly, We will be starting at 6:30 on Saturday-- Future Boy and Roymond's sets will move back about 20 minutes or so (allowing for slippage).

Humble suggestion: Why not retain the start time of 6pm, and allocate the overage time to the Live Fight, which always runs late anyway?

Well, it looks like 1/2 of fitzroy will not be able to make it due to job conflicts... So it will be another Bad Boys at Bat Mitzvahs solo acoustic act now. Just letting you know for all marquee, and promotional needs... ;)
