TRIGGER HIPPY/ CAPITOL THEATER, Bowling Green, Kentucky
The CAPITOL is a lovely old theatre, however SKyPAC and the Kentucky Arts Council seemingly don't know how to run this
in a Kentucky friendly manner, unlike the Plaza Theatre in Glasgow (KY),
which has the friendliest management and staff and wonderful old architecture.
A really fun night with my friends old and new.


TRIGGER HIPPY featuring Kentuckians, Steve Gorman (drums) + Joan Osborne (vocals), rocked!
