Only in Ithaca...
Alan Rose Band...would you need to schedule a two-day "preview show" for a weekend-long festival that's in three weeks, on the off chance the locals might get confused about which weekend to show up downtown for music.

Nevertheless, it was nice to see Alan Rose and his new band play on the Commons this afternoon, and I also availed myself of the chance to get a hot dog from Lou Cassaniti while I was at it. Even successfully resisted the impulse to go get a second one. (Ordering just one at first was the key.)

The poor guys from Radio London were probably just starting when the downpour started; I saw the clouds rolling in and made for the car, even though I'd like to have stayed for their set as well.

Tasty dinner at a friend's, followed by "Valmont," which I haven't seen in ages. It came out very near the same time as "Dangerous Liaisons," and was overshadowed. I think this was the more believable film, though the other (with Glenn Close and John Malcovich, et al) was better written. Both were awfully pretty in both sets and costumes. Now watching game four on the TiVo.

Current Music: "Dooby dooby doo..."

Also, Valmont is based off the original Laclos novel Les Liaisons Dangereuses, while Dangerous Liaisons is based off the Christopher Hampton play based off of the original novel.

Roundabout is currently staging revival of Hampton's Les Liaisons Dangereuses in NYC with Linda Linney in the Merteuil role, which is supposed to be absolutely fantastic... and which reminds me that I still haven't called Roundabout to change the date on my subscription tickets (which are currently for Saturday, June 28th at 8:00 p.m.).

ETA: And hey, did you know Wil Wheaton was originally supposed to be Danceny in Valmont? TNG wouldn't give him time off his contract to film it, though.

(As I try to catch up)

Radio London actually delayed their start until after the thunderstorm finished. By the halfway point of their (abbreviated) set, it was actually quite beautiful out.
