The PR firm for Station Casinos issued a very nice press release today (PDF file) for the upcoming Santa Fe gig at Palace Station. Remember, the midnight Saturday gig starts on May 2nd in the Bonkerz Comedy Club. We are gonna crush that room.
TRINA JOHNSON-FINN UPDATE
Local tribute artist Trina Johnson-Finn remains in custody in Suriname in the wake of the "Phony Toni" (Braxton) scam event. Her supporters are planning a benefit show for May 2nd, and are calling for performers to appear (click this link for contact info).
NEXT MONDAY AT THE PALMS
Our bro' Jerry Jones and his fabulous "5th Avenue" vocal group will sit in with Santa Fe. They've worked up some custom charts for the occasion. It will be killer!
Wow. Mikael, our guest from Sweden, gave me his friend's CD Monday night. Nice stuff, bro'!
THE LATEST UNEMPLOYMENT DATA
The NV trend tapered off below my second-order polynomial trend line just a crack in March (we're officially at 10.4% for March). DETR officials attribute that to people falling off the rolls. Once you've exhausted your unemployment benefits, you no longer "count" -- notwithstanding still being out of a job.
I'M OUTA HERE...
Yummie. BobbyG is off to SFO tomorrow on Virgin America again to go hang with my sweetie this weekend in Walnut Creek (she's back from Asia). I'll be back Monday.
