    I think they do something similar each year. I would imagine that some of the other acts will be on the East coast somewhere in the same timeframe.
    Not saying it would be cheaper, but might allow some flexibility in scheduling.
    Carla Bley is playing in DC on the Friday of Big Ears. THAT doesn't help!

    Looked at my schedule.
    I am conflicted. Why must I compromise?

    Not thrilled with the Nils Frahm and Makaya McCraven conflict. Other than that schedule is working out ok. Thankful Harold Budd is playing multiple sets.

    The Saturday run of Thumbscrew (Standard), This Is Not This Heat (Mill & Mine), Carla Kihlstadt (Bijou), looks particularly brutal with lots of overlap & different venues to get between.

    ^ ^ ^ ^

    Sadly, I'm leaving on Sunday because I didn't want to miss Monday at work, so I will not get to see Ronin!! :-(

    But all else will work out fine.
