Stuff happens, ya know? There are times we get a little too involved with our work, entering dates for Tears For Fears and U.K. Subs, and we completely space out and get confused. It’s not like we’re perfect. However, we did write down all the information while we were slamming in the new dates for Andy Griggs, but it appears that we transposed a few digits. Confused a 9 with a 6 and a 2 with a 37. It could happen to anyone.

But we still had the right info. Just a little jumbled. We wrote down the time while updating the schedule for Tiffany, we wrote down the directions while proofing the routings for The Kissers and Beastie Boys, and we wrote down the address while reviewing the changes for Candye Kane, Joanna Connor and Diana Krall. Hey, two out of three ain’t bad.

But it’s too late to change anything. Too late to reverse the clock, hit rewind, and live it all over again. And truth be told, even if we could turn back time, it wouldn’t be any guarantee that we could avoid this massive, Grade-A screw-up. We’d probably get caught up in the Australian dates for The Von Bondies, or perhaps the latest dates for Beenie Man and Wayne “The Train” Hancock, and completely blow our chance to make things right. That’s fate for you. Always getting in the way of getting things done.

Anyway, we can’t change what happened. All we can do is promise that it won’t happen again. That we’ll get everything straight – date, city, time and LOCATION. After all, date, city and time don’t mean nuttin’ if you don’t have the right location. No matter which tour we’re working on when the call comes, Neko Case, Marillion or John Hammond, we’ll make it a point to get the right location. Man, oh, man, were we embarrassed when we showed up at the wrong place. When the chips were down, we had the wrong location. That’s the plain truth. That’s what happened. That’s how we missed Britney’s wedding.

That’s right. We ended up at the wrong trailer park.

Oh, well. Better luck next time.
