A check-in on the Banjo versus TV project — J.R.'s ongoing plan to spend more time on his banjo than on TV. This post covers 11/1/2009 through 11/7/2009.
They don't want you to take pictures at concerts at the Old Town School. Maybe that's because pictures come out badly.
It was nice to see the band again. I walked up to say hello and several of them remembered me.
Their opening act was Henhouse Prowlers, a great bluegrass band from my neighborhood of Rogers Park. The Prowlers were a perfect choice for an opener. Our other neighborhood band, Sexfist, would have been inappropriate.

I was there. Thanks for the set list. I enjoyed the Henhouse Prowlers very much--thought they were the perfect band to open for Earl Scruggs. It was poignant for me to see Earl, I have to say. I'm glad I finally got the chance.

I should have specified that was the 10pm set list. I'm not sure if the 7pm show had the same songs. Both groups certainly have a lot of other songs!
