Just skimmed through it once, so far. Definitely want to see as many Threadgills as possible. Tomeka, for sure. Lots of conflicts on Thursday, but Fri-Sun seemed a little more manageable.

Looks to be a very satisfying year at BE.

As the saying goes, a Threadgill concert a day keeps the doctor away.

I thought about it but did not since all of his sets conflicted with something else I wanted to see.

Same here, but the Friday show had no major conflicts for me.

I just realized the other day that Threadgill is performing in only two shows. The others have a repertory group that's playing his compositions. Will still try to see as many as I can, though.
