    Thank you Hal

    I’ve been a little curious to see The Ghost Town Rebellion (The Dip, Friday), primarily because many of the songs on their records are about Sacrament history—the lead singer is a local historian. “McClatchy” (founded the Sacramento Bee), “Billy Land” (gave his name to William Land Park, one of Sacramento’s crown jewels), and “The Delta Kings” (riverboats). “Poverty Ridge” is about the area in Midtown Sacramento where people went to escape floods in Sacramento’s early days. Later, it became one of the more desirable places to build big Victorian mansions. My first job in Sactown was in an office in a Victorian on Poverty Ridge. Tom Hanks had lived in the house across the street.

      Well, dang. I’d heard a bit about Ghost Town Rebellion, and was already curious about them. Now I’m *really* interested. But, I won’t be able to make that one–I’m hosting an open mic in Red Bluff that night. That open mic is lots of fun, and I always have great performers. (What’s in the water in Red Bluff?) But, well, dang.
