- Hello Bop 'n' Bowl fans:
Well, there's good news and bad news...
Bad news first! In case you had heard of this show previously, let us clue
you in that the Bill Kirchen/Cigarbox Planetarium/'52 Pickup Bop 'n' Bowl
originally scheduled for this Saturday, September 6 is NOT GOING TO HAPPEN!
Sorry, but the alley management, in their infinite wisdom, decided to close
the lanes for the first two weeks of Sepember!
The GOOD news is that the latest proposal by the big money interests to
demolish the historic duckpin sanctuary to make way for luxury condos has
been sent packing by the Falls Church City Council! Wow! This is how
government is supposed to work! The City Council, for at least the second
time in a row, is more concerned with the public good than money! So the
duckpin lanes keep rollin' on for the time being! Read the laughably-biased
pro-development coverage by the Falls Church News Press here:
As regards the next opportunity for you to unleash your pent-up hostilities
on the li'l duckpins while listening to great live music, LAST TRAIN HOME
returns Saturday, October 4, with other bands yet to be announced! '52
We have a great Fall lineup in the works! Glim what's cookin' at
In other '52 Pickup news, the next phase of our plan for world domination
takes place in Baltimore!
First we perform in Charm City's MOST charming neighborhood, Hampden, at
HampdenFest, Saturday, September 20! Check
The very next week '52 Pickup rocks Roots Cafe with our DC pals Rockin'
