Rub Wrongways Caravan opens for Midnight Cowboy

Once again the Rub Wrongways Caravan of Stars is venturing into uncharted areas.  This Saturday we are playing a brief set at Pothole Pictures in Shelburne Falls, MA.  Pothole Pictures is a film series in a beautiful old theater called Memorial Hall.  We will be "opening" for Midnight Cowboy!  We play at 7:00 and the movie starts at 7:30.  We've got six songs planned.  We'll do one each from the bands School for the Dead, The Fawns, Bourgeois Heroes, Sitting Next To Brian, and Salvation Alley String Band, and a special cover song.

Those of you who have seen Midnight Cowboy know that there are some repeating musical pieces.  One of them is "Everybody's Talkin'" sung by Harry Nilsson (pictured).  But when the film was being made, Harry wrote another song specifically for the film that was never used.  This song was called "I Guess The Lord Must Be In New York City".  It's arrangement and mood are verrrry similar to "Everybody's Talkin'".  We'll be finishing our set with that song.

Then we're clearing the stage and grabbing seats to watch the movie.  Maybe you'll be there.
