Thank you KathWestra and Fortunato. And Rick.

This thread is making me wish my living room were larger with less stuff.

Wesley S., I can't speak for the sudden outbreak of acoustic venues in your area. I do know from experience that restauranteurs get to reinvest some profit, not just eat the inventory, when they're near other restaurants. Have you noticed how fast-food chains cluster, ditto for fine dining? The area becomes known for choices in that 'genre' of food.

I dearly hope that the same phenomenon works in Perth where a few people are feeling snotty because there are now two open stages on Thursday night in a town of 6,000. The choice of night makes sense to me because a lot of the hosts and participants are young or have to get sitters etc. and not everyone lives the night life. Especially where people still farm, cut wood, tap maples etc. to live. It makes for a late night when you have to drive the sitter home at 2:30 a.m.

Gosh I'm feeling chatty again...
