Looks like a great art deco venue, along the lines of The Tower Theater in Philly, although the website doesn't really give a good look.

It was renovated thanks to Albert Boscov, you fellow Pennsylheads.

Thanks for the link. Looks like a nice place.

ill be there with 83msg and my brother. at Bearsville it was more of a sit down show but there were people standing and dancing - more so where there wern't any seats. I enjoyed seeing him solo acoustic very much, it was more then I expected which wasn't bad to begin with. It's not really a good show for people to dose at though, or at least I wouldn't think so.

the only thing I didn't like was all the talkers which of course stand out more and then people trying to sing with him and stuff - got a little annoying


yeah i couldn't see doing any doses either at this type of show, but i bet some will be !

I consulted my Magic 8 Ball and a google satellite map, and both said prospects are good for plenty of parking.

The best place to park actually is a parking garage. You might find somewhere on a side street if you're lucky, but I'll be heading straight for the Boscov's garage.

Also if anyone's interested.... Mike Mizwinski will be doing a free solo set at the River Street Jazz Cafe before the show, and the Jam Stampede will be playing afterwards. Tickets are $10 in advance and available now. You can purchase them here:

Good to know about the Boscovs garage. I've never been to that area before. Anybody know of any cheapo hotels?

there is a best western and ramada within walking distance, around 100 per night. i'm sure 5-10 miles outside wilkes maybe even off 81 you could find a steal. also, when i'm traveling with low funds on the interstates, i always grab those books at the welcome center/rest stops with cheap hotel rates. i've scored some great 20-30 dollar rooms that would normally be 80+ thru those.

i'm still not sure what i'll be doing.
who else is gonna bring you, a broken arrow?
