Live music on a Tuesday night--

So what does someone in Ann Arbor do on a gloomy and rather boring Tuesday night?  If you have to go to work the next day, you eat dinner, do a load of laundry, and watch some TV before going to bed early.  But if you're retired, you jump in the car at 7:15 and get in the queue outside The Ark at 7:30 for a show at 8:00.
A jovial group of about 25 waiting for the door to open.

Last night's set was with a group that did traditional and contemporary close-harmony country music-- for $15 a ticket.  And when I came out at 9:45, I felt 100% better than when I went in at 8:00.  Wow-- lots better than watching TV!

If you are a member of the Ark, (for an annual $20 contribution), you can buy a beer, and for a $50 annual membership, you get free popcorn to enjoy with the show as well.  Read the info on membership here--   The best (and most amazing) part of The Ark is the music!

Where else can you hear live folk, roots or ethnic music-- just about every day of the year-- in such an intimate venue?  You can just close your eyes and pretend you are in Memphis-- or Nashville-- or Chicago-- or..... like me last night, Austin, Texas.

Get along little doggie---
