It’s official! The tickets arrived in the mail this week. Mike, and I (accompanied by our understanding and tolerant spouses) are all heading south in early August to catch the last show on the Dave Alvin and the Guilty Women tour at Fishlips. We also plan to check out a show at the Buck Owens Crystal Palace the next evening. What else is on the agenda? We plan to spend some quality time with Dr. BLT, hope to visit the Bakersfield Country Music Museum and maybe check out where the sea used to be! Some people think we are crazy to head to Bakersfield in August, but it’s our way of giving back, help the California sagging economy, hear some great music and make some new friends! We are bringing the “beyond” back to Bakersfield!
