Stones are rolling into town

Wouldn't you know it, we've had a severe drought here in Virginia for two solid months, and on the very day when the Rolling Stones are performing in Charlottesville, there is a fifty percent chance of rain! (Here in Staunton, morning drizzle has turned into light rain.) Parking and traffic will probably be nightmarish, so we plan on arriving hours early. If the set lists for their previous concerts in this tour (see rollingstones.com) are any indication, there is a high likelihood that they will open with "Start Me Up." (Memories of Windows 95: Ugh.) Trey Anastasio of Phish phame will do the opening, and I'm still hoping that a certain former Charlottesville resident (Dave Matthews) will make a surprise appearance.
