Thanks for the tips. I'm checking out very few bands this's a shame. I'll have to miss the 2 bands you mentioned. The one day I'm going is July 6th. I'll check Kopecky, who are a local progressive metal act, then the Outlaws, old-school southern rock, and maybe a little Trower. Check that day and let me know if anything catches your eye.

Nope, not really anybody I'm interested in that day. Digital Underground would be fun to check out, though.

Do the "Humpty",
