I'll be looking for the brothers. The get together after the Beacon concert was very memorable.

Redstudio......Too bad we missed you at the after party in NYC....LadyDi told me there was talk of nametags but it didn't happen.

Maybe we could list seats so we can go visiting at intermission or before/after?

I'll be at Left Pit Row 5 on the aisle.

Anyone near me?

I'll be (almost) your mirror twin: Right Pit, row 5, one seat off the aisle

Hi Leonard ~

That always sounds like a great idea, but I daresay it rarely happens... trying to remember other people's names, rows, and seats, when you're more focused on getting to the merchandise table or to the restroom or to grab a drink or to speak with someone you already do know and this is but a brief opportunity to reconnect, if you're not simply ensconced in talking with whoever it is that happens to be right next to or around you. The before- or after-meetups or name tags [hokey as they may be] really are your better plans, if you seriously are hoping to meet others from me. If others have had successful experiences with row and seat numbers, please jump in... I've just not seen or heard of its happening, though I've specifically heard of its not happening, despite the best of intentions.

Lizzy,

You are right about hokey nametags, which are hard to orchestrate. They never appeared at O'Hurleys in New York, although you and I did meet with LadyDi. So seats became an idea because a meet-up didn't appear to be jelling, although there was a small one at the Bristol Lounge around the corner from the Wang.

What really worked was using the description of what we were wearing for the Early Entrance. I had a wonderful grey Leonard Cohen jacket with the Unified Heart that I got in Toronto. It brought out BobR from Maine, Brightsnow from Columbia, Maryland (Ari), Pomona from Acton, MA (Laurie ), a Forum Memeber from Burlington Vermont, Dr. Bill and others whose names the excitement prevents me from remembering.

All in all, a succesful mini-meet-up.

And both the Friday and Saturday concerts were so emotional, so iconic, so over the top, that on Sunday I immediately tried to figure out how to get to Red Rocks, as I was listening to the London O2 CD!!!

I am still floating!
