Surely a day on which any reasonable person would stay indoors with a good book. So, what will you be doing? ask the more astute of my readers. Well, I will hitching a lift from NYC to DC to see They Might Be Giants play as part of the “Live on Penn” concert series. I will be bringing the current good book (Not in Front of the Children: “Indecency,” Censorship, and the Innocence of Youth, by Marjorie Heins) with me. Also a rain poncho, a folding lawn chair, a large towel, a spare set of clothes, my tape recorder, two blank 90-minute cassettes, and two disposable cameras.

Out the door at six in order to reach the Manhattan apartment of Rob (the driver) by eight, because the frickin’ M train has been replaced by shuttle buses on the weekends until mid-August; then a five-hour drive, followed by two or three hours of standing under intermittent rain until we may actually enter the concert area; then another four hours until TMBG’s scheduled starting time.

Such is the power of accordion rock.
