Free Music, Weekend in Titusville and concert in Franklin!

Headed out of town again, so just a quick post.

Thursday is the 150-year Silver Cornet Band anniversary concert at 7:30 p.m. Thursday in Franklin's South Park. A gala party hosted by the Franklin Fine Arts Council will precede the concert at 6:30 p.m. In the event of rain, the concert will be moved to the Barrow-Civic Theatre. Those snazzy pins we talked about earlier will be available for $3.00 at the show.

Pete Greene has updated Venangoland with a piece about Moon Over Milford. Former Venango County resident, now Wired editor, responds to Pete's column about local talent here.

Titusville Council on the Arts 13th Annual Juried Art Exhibit will be Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Main Street School.
For additional information, call 827-2381. This weekend sounds like a good one to spend in Titusville. In addition to the art show, Big Jack Earl will be playing at Drake's Follie Brew Fest in Titusville the same day. (a belated congrats to Jerome the bassist from Big Jack Earl and his wife, Erin, on the birth of their second child, Jasper Eugene Toman Wincek.)

Palermo Realty & Development is selling an Erie neighborhood (18 buildings containing 139 apartments, 11 garages and five storefronts) on eBay.

Tango Magazine has a summer mix available for download

In the cramped back room of a dive in Brooklyn, a crowd of sweaty patrons are drinking and listening to live music. At the end of each song they explode in rowdy applause. Aside from the lack of cigarette smoke, which still seems odd even three years after the citywide ban in bars, it's an average evening for a music fan. Except that tonight is opera night. Would I be pleased to see a similar show in the Barrow Civic's Little Theatre? Yes. Yes I would.

Thanks for the congradulations. I have been meaning to post to let you know that the Oil City Library now has Small Brutal Incidents on the 7 Day shelf. It was a great read.
