So yeah man there are surely there are certain goal every keep getting here let it sit where I am where I am right now it's beautiful sunny day in. You know you would know anything happened but I hear he could do a little bit it to mask. Good here for Houston and I guarantee you probably no matter where the venue is you're gonna have somebody come up to you before the show neither of bills or sabres Jersey tonight wanted to sell me.

Little taste of home back and of these western New Yorkers that are getter on the world premiere. Where the Robby take at this morning talking about the Yugo show what the show in Houston tonight to benefit the food bank of Houston. And of course Robbie UB here you gotta be so excited ripper works a perfect place for music is art on Saturday but. Since you moved it indoors do you realize there's no chance of hurricane this week. Can. I do it IQ and apparently that's what I had to do senator. You know arm Utley what is a lot of really interest evening came down you know you can go look at who. Who haven't. Heard of the regular apple past fifteen years that you trust what we do. We've been doing her look at fifteen years with the Delaware park for the last nine. Huge yeah. Show where he didn't they didn't card expansion this kind of stuff mostly Western New York. Yeah that we we who range in four of the last. Nine years in Delaware park that's like. Call it will be Robbie take act umbrella fast. Yeah. While you're actually a decorated umbrella contest it was pretty what you only can he carry around with. Act at all well yeah you know it was it was. You know it's an amazing place and everybody down that was so cool city was so cool what this but. You know we started to think about it a little bit and there are a lot of things I think you know the whole idea of these are guys is it's just that. Will this huge group creative people together and try to make up and exciting bigger and each of the park you know and we I sort of felt like having Indo apart as many years had. Shorter at. Drew expect sort of what was gonna go on sort of do a little bit including. The speaker knew it was gonna happen yeah and there were partners in the report that it was that kind of imagine what it is. And kind of opened work and two Bryant will be down lower. Months and months and months between last set on this one all the court ordered. Imagine what sort of lose that keep people are going to be. Excited and that pretty surprised blows I. I think river works is a perfect venue because first of all you've got so many indoor stages already set up yet to do have to set up. Secondly some of the venues like that planet of the gates type movie set deal it is absolutely perfect draw be different artists you have coming. Yeah I am and we got infringement festivals folks are working with this again we got about thirty performance artists planes silos. Which is an old.
