James & everyone else:

We are direly in need of a flyer. I will design one. (It'd be easier if I
could use a computer w/ Photoshop or other image design program, I
recently lost my Macbook & have no backup). James can you & everyone else
reading this please send me info for all bands/performers/other events or
item of interest that are confirmed for the 30th? (And is that the
definite, finalized date?) That needs to be on the flyer. If I get it
today I can probably have a draft flyer to show you (James) & whomever
else we're meeting with at 6pm Tuesday (before the general meeting @ NB).
