    Williams Inn is a fairly upscale hotel. Did you see my link on a previous page? http://haflingerhaus.com/the-inn/ It's cheaper, just about as close and not well advertized (so may not be booked). This may spur some activity: http://www.thetranscript.com/ci_22684808/mass-moca-encourages-locals-rent-their-extra-rooms I'm not sure how far NYC is; I'd fly into Albany.

    Shhh. I'm in hiding. Seriously though, not much has changed. The best thing to do would be to read through the exhaustive first year thread. I've heard of locals renting rooms/houses but I really don't know how they set that up, must be elsewhere on the internet. I searched for the original solid sound thread but can't find it. Gone? Of course not, I think this is it: http://viachicago.org/topic/43552-wilco-solid-sound-festival/
  5. Locals being senior museum staff? Not that there aren't plenty of exceptions, but I'd say the majority of North Adams natives listen to top 40, radio-ready country. There's also a lot of death-by-bass-speaker action at stop lights.
  6. It's been out and available for purchase. They were also exhibited at the first Solid Sound. He's good. You can see him snapping some in the Ashes of DVD.
  7. And bring sun block with a military grade SPF.
  8. Wait, I was at that show. What time did it start? I think I was eating lunch at 12 and listening to them warm up.
  9. I think it's gross when people play concert police. I've seen pairs of people at shows not enjoying the show because they are shaking their heads, pointing at, and discussing somone with a phone raised somewhere in front. The person with the phone is usually oblivous to the disdain and having a great time. Personally, I'm more distracted by the agitation of the observers. I don't use a phone at concerts. I don't really care if other people do. Jeff doesn't pay me to. I'm not lame enough to think he might befriend me because I defend his sensibilities or am somehow closer to the band fo
  10. I think you're probably right.
  11. Hey. I'll accept a lot of descriptors for N.A., but goofy is not on the list.
  12. They way the odds worked out on the lottery is so odd to me. Everyone I know who bid, won. I wish Megabucks was more like that. Who's willing to guess how many bids overall?
  13. There's no good excuse for all the Williamstown Motel trouble but I will say that they're a nice family and haven't owned it very long.
  14. As far as the weather, I urge you not even to ponder it. Nearly every day is "chance of thunderstorms" here all summer. It will either be nice or not as nice and that could change back and forth over the course of a few hours. When you want to plan a cookout here, you throw a dart at the calender.
  15. It's not the same Joe. The baseball field is adjacent to the Solid Sound tent site (Noel Field): http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=Noel+Field+01247&aq=&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=31.426353,56.513672&ie=UTF8&hq=Noel+Field&hnear=North+Adams,+Massachusetts+01247&ll=42.693287,-73.111782&spn=0.006719,0.013797&t=h&z=16 The bigger diamond is Joe Wolfe field, the home of the Steeple Cats.
