    Wish they could pick up Isle of Klezbos while they’re here. I have another commitment tomorrow & cannot get to Skidmore to hear them. (Was going to take Rte 50 bus & stay overnight at EconoLodge) The usual embarrassment of Riches! Thought Williamses concert at 8th Step was SUNDAY? Two other commitments that night, too. Feast or famine!

    I have to agree with PK Miller. Isn’t there a new regional arts organization, part of whose mission is to coordinate arts performances so everything isn’t happening on one night?
