One year later memorial gathering tonite (Sun.2015.08.09): 9pm at Joe's on Broadway, proceeding to the breakwater at Montrose.  Q's?  Ask Martin.

He did try to get me to go to Hidden Cove one night but I don't care for the place.  I think we may need to walk back this portrayal of Dan as an obsessive karaoke freak.  He loved music (particularly roots-rock), people, and those other things taverns have to offer.... I think karaoke just guaranteed those things.

Anyways, I spoke to Maureen at Spyner's last night and it seems the brass bands are playing earlier in the side room but she says they keep the door between the rooms closed and she doesn't think there will be any conflict at all.  I'd suggest 9:30-10 as the optimal time to make it there on Thursday... earlier if you've got kids to put to bed I guess.

He loved to go over to the Hidden Cove on Lincoln Ave. that's where I ended the Karaoke Ride of N.S.C.M. Last time I seen Dan was at the ChainLink party Half Acres Brewery. He said to me that he moved by that bar & loves going there to karaoke .

Karaoke starts at 9:30. Dan was a regular at Spyner's, but here is some info courtesy of Steve who runs Karaoke with Alma at Davenport's:

(sorry, NING wouldn't let me paste that for whatever reason)

If anyone has access to a large format printer, let me know-- would be cool to make a few posters for the event.

I met Dan when he sauntered up to our table at Maifest this year.  He chatted us up about Joe Strummer, The Boss and then he played us a few licks.  Rock on.  Some souls will never fade.
