Hometown Happiness!

Maybe a Greyhounds show would be fitting for one of these after parties?! JD, can I get an AMEN?!

Beautiful setting in a beautiful town. You outta towners will dig it.

I just found the answer to the after-show question.

"AFTER HOURS PARTIES. The festival is also pleased to announce its series of After Hours shows at NOVA 535 in downtown St. Petersburg. These concerts will begin immediately following the Blues Festival and continue until 2:00 a.m. Friday’s artists include Reba Russell and Lil’ Ed & the Blues Imperials; Saturday features Joanne Shaw Taylor, Tad Robinson, and Magic Slim & the Teardrops; Sunday offers John Nemeth, Cedric Burnside and Lightnin’ Malcolm, and Joe Louis Walker. After Hours party tickets are available to the public at $20 each. Don’t let the fun end too early!"

That's great Stan, look forward to seeing you again. This would be a good one for Hollis too--if you like the bands. It's not an over-packed festival or anything and the asshole factor is relatively low.
