    Please, what does it mean, a “sold out Headphonium”?

    I may have to work but other wise the main reason to attend is to go to the Headphonium, but if “sold out” means no more attendees allowed then I shall not go.

    I can not swim so a pool party is not for me. Also, I do not drink adult beverages so that too, is off limits for me. I like music and records but I suppose I can still do that at home. Reel to reel is always gorgeous to look upon and listen to. Cassettes too, so long as they both have VU Meters. “SIGH”…

    Any way. I should abandon the idea of going. Travel is difficult for me, even short distances. I am such a toad and toads are S L O W. 😉 Okay then. I hope all Ecoustics folk can attend and enjoy themselves as well as those who are already signed in/up. Good for them!

    In all ways and for always, be well. You guys are cool. I mean that. Cool.
