It's a term I had never heard before, but it makes a lot of sense: the stay-cation. You take time off, but you don't take off. Or you take time off, but you don't go far.
This weekend there are a bunch of stay-cation type things to do starting with Ruthie and the Wranglers who will be out in Purcellville, Virginia recording a live concert. Click on the poster for details. Ruth has been singing her heart out for many a moon now, and the girl has it down.
Or you could go in a completely different direction to the Columbia Lakefront in Maryland to see Billy Coulter- yet another local musician who is chock full of talent.
Both bands play this Saturday which gives you plenty of time to get lost and make the downbeat.
Finally if all of the above is too far away, and you are in a Deadhead frame of mine, check out the U-Liners' Jerry Garcia tribute show at Iota. 9 p.m. $15
(Or you could take the whole staycation thing to the nth degree and hole up with a pint of Cherry Garcia, but..)
