2013 SYMPHONY HALL SHOW IS ON !!

Gang,

My recent missive about the Internet acronyms the kids are using nowadays was met with such enthusiasm that I went back and dug a little deeper. It turns out that our generation is also very much using those Interwebs and texting their hearts out, and that a whole new lexicon has sprung up to support us. A few examples:

BTW no longer just means “By The Way,” it can also mean, depending on context, “Bring the Wheelchair.” CUATSC is short for “See You At The Senior Center.” GGPMBL means “Gotta Go, PaceMaker Battery Low,” OICU812, for “Oh, I See You Ate One Too,” and YY4U, or “Too Wise For You.”

Hot News: the video biography produced by Todd Kwait and Rob Stegman, “Tom Rush: No Regrets,” took the prize for “Best NH Documentary” at the New Hampshire Film Festival. There will be a DVD released, but not until sometime next year.

More, Even Hotter News: I’ll be returning to Symphony Hall for a brand new tons o’ fun show on Saturday, December 28th,and it’s going to be a musical party to remember! (There will be no filming this year, and no streaming, so either you’re there, or you’re not.)

So far we’ve got the Jim Kweskin Jug Band with Maria Muldaur, Geoff Muldaur and Bill Keith – now there’s a party right there! And Patty Larkin is coming… it just keeps getting better. We’re still working on the guest list, and I don’t want to muddy the waters by making announcements before we have signed contracts, but we’ll have one or two additions before we’re through. Need I remind you that tickets make a wonderful Christmas gift? I didn’t think so.

This hasn’t been announced to the general public yet, so you have a one-week head start at getting the very best tickets. You can click http://www.bso.org/Performance/Detail/60206 or call 1-888-266-1200 and the Symphony Hall Box Office will be happy to assist you.

And in the immediate future, I’m in Auburn, New York at the Auburn Public Theater tomorrow, Saturday the 2nd, and finally at the World Café Live in Philly on Sunday night, the 3rd. Come on by!

Thanks for reading!

All the best,

Tom
