    Ha! I didn’t get the “Tribute Bands on the River” bit, read the lineup, thought to myself “Wow, Tons ‘o Tributes”, re-read your intro and laughed.

    I’m still waiting for an announcement on the line up for Troy’s River Street Festival on June 16. Last year’s bill Of Los Straightjackets, The Neanderthals, Blotto and Graham Tichy would be hard to beat, but after seeing the schedule listed above, I’m afraid to look!
