Oh, to be in Vegas right now. I don’t think there’s ever been a blues event like the Big Blues Bender going on this week. The lineup is amazing. My sister is in Sin City this week, and I’ve urged her to catch part of this, but she isn’t a blues fan, and isn’t exactly as excited as I am.
Walter will be in Puget Sound after all! For whatever reason, he chose the Skagit Center in Burlington for his stop. I don’t need a car very often, but it would be nice to have one now. I guess I can take the bus and sleep overnight. Or find someone on Twitter or Craigslist to share a ride.
Ayron Jones & The Way will open for Trout. It will be a nice consolation for missing Bender. Tickets are on sale at Ticket Tomato. Show begins at 8:00PM on Saturday, Oct. 10th.
