The night I’m referring to is not the night of the Passover seder, but the first night of a multi-night run. The answer is that on all other nights, you are likely to get no special guests while on this first night you are more likely to get special guests. This is what happened when Alison and I saw Paul Simon’s second night at the Beacon on Valentine’s Day, missing Art Garfunkel. Last night, Neko Case had a number of special guests at the first night of her two at the Nokia Theater. Let’s hope that they’re there tonight as well. I’d love to see Norah O’Connor (for the first time) and Lucy Wainwright Roche (again). I’m also hoping for Jon Rauhouse on steel guitar but the pictures make that look unlikely.
