There in the middle of the e-mail, something else caught my eye -- indeed I was so excited that I thought it was the description of the Cash Bash, only to then have to apologize to Battles for telling him that he had gotten the date wrong in the e-mail --
Thursday, January 28You can understand my shock and enthusiasm surely.
Alex Battles & The Whisky Rebellion
with Jack Grace Band and Jack Hardy
315 Columbia St., Brooklyn, NY
Jack Hardy? The Jack Hardy? Our Jack Hardy?

Alas, I'll be down in Washington, D.C., for a conference on the 28th. But Jalopy is a terrific venue, and those are three solid acts, so I encourage people to get out there and see the show!
