Nice, Calgary. I'm a guy who was steeped in classic rock and toured with the Grateful Dead before moving on to bluegrass. Much to my surprise, I've caught a few DJ acts that I really dig. In particular, Grammatik blew me away. And I wasn't the oldest guy there!

Gray - I'd love to hear those recommendations, particularly in the jazz realm. I used to be a regular NOLA Jazz Fest attendee, and got exposed to a ton of artists in small tents at the Fairgrounds and in clubs around town. I feel like I've lost some of that, though. Please fire away!

Thank you, Mastro! These are all new to me, and I can't wait to dig in. Your descriptions are fantastic. On boygenius - I've definitely listened to them. That's a whole helluva lot of talent on one stage.....

I remember January 1994, my last year in school, quite well. Temps hit -22, which still stands as an all-time cold temp in Columbus. We lived in a basically non-insulated seven bedroom place on Northwood and Lane. That was freaking cold, and the university did cancel classes. But we didn't petition for it. Or even really care much.

Yep. I don't get Autzen on there either. It is loud, though. If you want to go with a newer stadium, Sonny Lubick Field (Colorado State) is pretty damn nice - I like it much better than TCF (Minnesota). And, Nippert Stadium is a classic - I've enjoyed the Cincy games I've been to.

I love the idea of a sports park there - gets rid of some of the sea of surface parking and creates a longterm community amenity. Most MLS teams are building significant practice facilities, and nearly all of them - even if the team plays downtown - are in the suburbs or exurbs. This keeps the team practicing near what (I hope) will be a downtown stadium and it gives a huge boost to that part of the city.
