Nothing like a Friday, day-long Compilation/Review Update seminar down in Groton to get those juices flowing! Sufficiently juiced by 4:15 PM, I jump into the Friday night rush hour traffic along I95 west toward New Haven to meet the boys (mild-mannered Keith, swashbuckling Vinny V and the noted rapper Rant On) for Lucinda Williams' free concert on the New Haven Green. God, this traffic sucks! I promised them I'd be there by five, but it's almost quarter to six and I'm only crossing the Q-Bridge.
Finally arrived at Vinny's. I'm awarded a beer as we pack Vinny's car with the essentials for the concert - chairs and beer.
