Jeff Lichtman posted a note on 78-L with suggestions for those  attending 
ARSC Conference but many of you may not be on that list. I posted a  reply 
with some comments and thought worth posting here too.

THanks for the tips Jeff. Guess yiou went the SECOBD weekend. Sounded like  
the first one got deluged with rain. I was disappointed that NPR or any 
other on  line services didn't do streaming or podcasts of the music this year. 
EVery year  since Katrina there were some. Some day I just may go, but it 
was great to at  least hear them and preserve them.

I think that's where DAve SAger is having the new NOLA CD release party  
(FRiday night?). It's a great store and you can see it in the video I posted.  
I'm pretty sure that they arranged for a special discount for ARSC 
Conference  attendees.

Bruce is giving a paper and I seem to remember that on Wednesday there are  
planned tours of the Archive by advance registration. (Me? I'll be at the 
Board  meeting that day.)

George was to be involved somewhere in the ARSC program but I don't see it. 
 THe Label is run by George's assistant Houcine (nice guy). ALL the back 
stock  and even Lps are there. Not open to the public but if you call Houcine 
first,  you can probably visit. Lots of neat memorabilia on the walls.

THis club was my find. NO cover or minimum and great surroundings and 3  
blocks from hotel. I plan to be there almost every night.

Wonder if SAger - who played with Banu when he lived in NOLA - will be  
sitting in?

This is the guy we saw in October and is in my video.

PH does 50 minute sets every night at 8-9-10. early sets get full quick.  
small space.
