Random Notes

A couple of things. First, the House of Blues sent out a notice today that at the end of February, us press types are invited to come down to tour the joint, which will open in May in the White Swan Building in the West End…pardon, Victory Park, my bad. Normally, we’d skip an event like this; nothing more boring than a construction site tour, though I do look rather dapper in a hard hat. But this one’ll be a little different: The HOB folks are bringing in a Very Special Tour Guide, none other than Dan Aykroyd himself, the Blues Brother and HOB co-founder who will be there for the what the press release calls the traditional “Mississippi River Mud Ceremony,” which is described as “a symbolic infusion of blues-enriched river mud into every HOB stage in the U.S.” Dunno what to ask Danny about first: the House of Blues or Nothing But Trouble. Probably the former.
