Return of the Cub

IMG_0238

that’s not cubberley or music but I was recently talking about Lefty O’Douls the defunct nightclub — I guess that’s the hook, the defunctness. I checked out recently a book about the baseball player and namesake. joc pederson of paly and dodgers was compared to Lefty O’Doul.


I produced 150 rock and jazz concerts at Cubberley in the 1990s, and I’m working on another one, after 15 year hiatus, for this fall.
I also am the exact age where a lot of my friends attended Cubberley the school and Gunn the school.

I am picturing anything from re-opening a high school as is, to razing the entire place for 1,000 dense packed homes.

I like 32 acres of earth art ala Michael Heizer or Robert Smithson or Andy Goldsworthy.
Isn’t it pretty to think so (that’s a literary reference)?

Still not sure why we are spending $800,000 for these meetingns? wil there be snacks?

edit to add: if i was a little bit better at what I do best, i would post a photo i took in 2009 of the ernie banks monument at Wrigley field, playing on the word “cub”
