Life gets so much easier. Instead of having to trot off to Charlottesville on October 1 to see Jake, I have the chance to see him in my neck of the woods. He's coming to Jammin' Java in Vienna, VA on October 2. He's sharing billing with Hit and Run Bluegrass and Smooth Kentucky so I get to hear some new music. Less of Jake is not good but more new music balances that out.
