Hello all! just arrived in ann arbor, michigan, after two great nights in West Virginia. our first night there we played in Carnegie Hall! Carnegie Hall in Lewisburg, WV, that is. it was the culmination of a festival called Taste Of Our Town, or T.O.O.T., and it reminded me very much of home (http://www.carnegiehallwv.com/events/toot.htm). it was a great street fair with lots to eat, and it felt like a combination of Simsbury (small town, everyone knows everyone), and Brooklyn (street fair!). the shows have been going great! last night we played at a venue called Mountain Stage (http://www.mountainstage.org/) with a the venerable Loudon Wainwright III, and i was surprised to learn of his acting career (http://www.lwiii.com/). he lit up the stage with his great sense of humor and clever lyrics. tonight we play a venue called the Blind Pig, with which we have had very little contact. cross your fingers!
