Calibretto Update

While I'm at it on the band updates, here's the latest email from Calibretto:

July 7, 2004
It's over, kids. Check out the final tour dates.

The Final Tour.
Maybe we didn't make ourselves totally clear before:
Calibretto is most definitely calling it quits.
This means, of course, that the summer tour -- The Last Laugh Tour --
will be our final outing as a band. We're doing our
best to hit all over the country so that everyone can come and see
us. We'll be rocking out each night with Side Walk Slam
and Mercury Radio Theater, so it will be a great show all around.
We'll also be playing some older songs and just generally
having a good time. So come on out and say goodbye, because it's the
last chance you'll ever get.

And don't forget about the FINAL HALLOWEEN BASH on October 30 in
Kokomo, Indiana. Kids, costumes, bands, horror movies, bad
jokes, and one unbearably hot room will make for a lot of very sweaty
fun. Come to the last show. You won't regret it. Very much.

Here are all the dates we have thus far. We're still working on the
West Coast. If you are a promoter or run a venue, please e-mail to book a show.

I am definitely making their final show. I'd like to make at least one before that, but I'm not sure how to work that out . . . The one closest to my home in IL (Mokena) is on a weekday, so I almost definitely won't be around, while the ones closest to my place in VA are more than two hours away. Any thoughts or suggestions?

A blonde decides to try horseback riding, even though she has had no lessons or prior experience. She mounts the horse unassisted and it immediately springs into motion. It gallops along at a steady and rhythmic pace, but the blonde begins to slip from the saddle. In terror, she grabs for the horse's mane, but cannot seem to get a firm grip.
She tries to throw her arms around the horse's neck, but she slides down the side of the horse anyway. The horse gallops along, seemingly ignorant of its slipping rider.

Finally, giving up her frail grip, the blonde attempts to leap away from the horse and throw herself to safety. Unfortunately, her foot becomes entangled in the stirrup, and she is now at the mercy of the horse's pounding hooves as her head is struck against the ground over and over.

She starts to lose consciousness, but to her great fortune, Bobby, the Wal-Mart greeter, sees her and unplugs the horse.
