So I guess when you build something you first lay down some sort of foundation, and then you build stuff upon it. Fascinating.
And that’s precisely what’s happening with the new Henry Miller Library stage. Your kind donations are going to help pay for it, as well as ongoing maintenance, staging area supplies, and production-related expenses. That’s very nice of y’all, and we are so grateful.
And it really is exciting, because the stage is really coming together. I mean, look:
Actually, that’s not true. I was about to go out there and do my best Roger Daltrey impersonation, but Todd said to wait. Something had to settle or something. Glue, maybe?
You can also see it’s nicely elevated. The old stage – may it RIP – well, not so much. If anything, it kind of sank into the wet earth. (Heck, when Frank Black played here last year he was ankle-deep by his second encore.)
Anyway, this picture likely doesn’t do the progress much justice. So perhaps this one will. It’s a close up. Nice, right?
So things are moving along swimmingly.
Stay tuned for more updates, and until then, ponder this: The Who peaked with 1967′s “The Who Sell Out.” It was all downhill since then. Discuss.
