11:37 am - argh!
Oh, and guess who's playing Symphony Hall here in Boston tonight?

Arlo Guthrie.

2005 is the 40th anniversary of the Alice's Restaurant Massacree. You know. The event that all started two Thanksgivins ago -- two years ago on Thanksgivin.

And I can't go! Weep, wail, gnash, etc.

Indeed. I saw Arlo (and occasionally Pete, Sarah, Tao, etc) at Carnegie Hall every Thanksgiving weekend for many years. He puts on a great show. :)

I walked past the poster outside Symphony Hall last night and thought to myself that his hair seems to be evolving into a separate, sentient being.

It's important to note that this makes the event 42 Thanksgivin's ago. Make of that what you will.

The actual event is 40 Thanksgivins ago. The Anti-Massacree Movement was started 38 years ago, then.

Ah, sorry. I was confusing the Massacree anniversary with the Album release. I stand corrected.
