    Reading my old hometown newspaper and ran across this story about Artpark's summer concert series. Here's the lineup:

    June 4: Billy Idol**

    June 11: Joan Jett and The Blackhearts

    June 18: REO Speedwagon

    June 25: Chicago**

    July 9: The Doobie Brothers**

    July 16: Bad Company with Paul Rodgers**

    Aug. 6: .38 Special with Blue Oyster Cult

    Aug. 13: Lynyrd Skynyrd**

    Aug. 20: Gladys Knight and The O’Jays**

    Aug. 27: ZZ Top**

    Did I miss the last 35 years? Is it 1978 all over again?

    Damn. We're at Artpark one week earlier and our tickets cost a fair bit more than $10. Mind you, we're seeing the Avett Brothers so it's totally worth it. :D

    Martin is making a D35 Seth Avett model that looks fantastic.

    I would be all over (most of) that in a heartbeat. If it was 78 we'd have good new music again.
