WE JUST HAD to pull the plug on another Concert On The Plaza. This time, the students of Culver-Stockton College were denied a chance to a play in the First Mid-Illinois Bank plaza.
Two weeks ago, we had to call off George Cate's show because it was cold and rainy. Thankfully the group Pepper Cheese (a couple of miscreants) were able to play last week.
We still have two, and possibly three, shows to go. I am blaming former District chief Travis Brown for the bad weather - Travis leaves for another job, and the last Blues In The District was a cold night. Travis leaves, and two of the three plaza shows get rained out.
Travis doesn't have to come back, though it would be great if he did. He simply has to call the weather gods and say, "I put that big geek from Second String Music in charge of the Concerts On The Plaza. Now give him good weather dangit!"
Make the call, Travis. Sunshine and blue skies for the next two or three Thursdays. Guaranteed.
