It's sure to be a reasonably big Saturday night on Avenue C this week when SUSQUEHANNA INDUSTRIAL TOOL & DIE CO. takes to the happiest bar in the East Village, TENELEVEN -- joined by that naughtiest of guest gypsy singers, THE BABY MARIA!

SATURDAY, MAY 17th, 171 Avenue C (between 10th & 11th Streets) in Manhattan, NYC

Two bad & bawdy shows, from 9:00 sharp until 11:00 / No cover! / Oh, and not to toot our hillbilly horn, but thanks to New York Magazine for a kind mention this week! "Bluegrass"? Well, they got the moustaches right. And, frankly, my Tool *hasn't* been getting the press it deserves. Fourth blurb down, if you care to peek:

Always yours, Michael

Susquehanna Industrial Tool & Die Co. "Ballads, Boogies & Blues"
Not sure if I have a cold or hay fever. Probably both but figure it's best not to be spreading any lurghi around at the David Scott/Norman Blake/Vaselines shindig in Dunfermline tonight. It's been a busy old week but mostly cool. Attended a funeral of a colleague that retired from the rat race less than a year ago. Not a good deal by any stretch of the imagination.

Not exactly sure what's gonna give this weekend 'ceptin a trip to auld reekie on Sunday. I really do need to cut down a dirty big hedge in the garden. This cold may well prevent that happening again and one has to be sorted out in time for The Pastels/Taken By Trees double header at Le Weekend next Friday.
RIP - Will Elder
