Musical Scroller Gatherings
There's a couple of ways this can work. You can put out a general invite for a concert you're already going to. Or if you're thinking about going to a concert, but want company you can post and see if there's any interest in a meeting. As the summer festival season (in the northern hemisphere anyway) is already underway, this could be an opportunity for music loving scrollers to meet up.

No scrollers live in your area? Well, you never know until you put out the information if people are willing to go to your part of the world. Travelling to a concert? Then post and see if there are any locals willing to meet up with you.

an example of the first:

What: Austin City Limits Festival
Where: Austin TX, USA
When: September 14, 15 & 16, 2007
Who's going: Smirk Morgan and at least one non-Scroller buddy.

Additonal Comments: I've got a three day pass and wouldn't mind getting together with Austin folks or anybody else who is interested in going. Awesome line-up includes Bob Dylan, The White Stripes, Bjork, Queens of the Stone Age, Wilco, the Killers, Bloc Party and a lot more. Austin City Limits Festival website

an example of the second:

What: Wolfmother
Where: House of Blues, Dallas TX
When: June 23, 2007 8:30pm
General Comments: Just seeing if there's any interest.

See, it's easy. The above are just examples.

What concerts are you going to this summer? Do you want to use them as an opportunity to meet some of your fellow Scrollers? If so, just add a post here...

If'n it don't rain Saturday, i'll probably go see Al Green and Spyro Gyro at the Indy Jazz Fest. Not sure about ticket prices. No scrollers around these parts anyhoo. Haven't seen any good concerts upcoming, about all we get round here are old fart acts (though Al Green is always cool) and most worthwhile artists show up on weeknites. Laura Veirs and Mirah are comin' to town but i dun like Mirah and only one song from Veirs. i promise to change my socks more often if decent artists would come to town.
