Re: FESTIVAL of VOICE + ELECTRONICS this coming TUESDAY, MAY8th at 8 p.m. at the RIO THEATRE

Sorry Matt... 

Seeing as this is a FREE show, Rick was constrained by available time 
slots.... We'll be super famous after this show and will have no trouble 
booking the big halls on weekends. *-) Good luck on the house hunt!

Aargh! You're such a tease! I really wanted to go to this, but I'm looking 
at apartments all week. (I'm getting a good kick in the pants for finding 
new place, in that my apartment is about to be condemned.)

I'd submit a request that you guys have these things on weekends, but I 
understand that the theatre is probably tied up on weekends all the time.

Everybody who can, go to this! It will be worth your while!
