My suspicion:  The Vermont set was in the middle of nowhere, which made it 
equidistant and a few hours drive from any number of "somewheres": Boston, 
Montreal, Several mid-size NY cities, Burlington, etc.  I also suspect that 
the lack of a Boston club date had to do with the fact that the venues in 
Boston are tightly controlled by a single monopolist who makes no apologies 
for gouging both at the box office and through the ticketing agencies he 

Can't wait to see them in NYC!
