New pole at Lytton Plaza

New pole at Lytton plaza

I’ve done more than a dozen concert events at Lytton Plaza, and pass by the plaza several times a week scouting street musicians and other happenings.

So for Plastic Alto the blog construction at the Plaza resulting in the removal of an old lamp pole and replacement by a new and improved lamp pole is news.

Should not detract from my September 28 show with Steve Poltz or my September 29 show with Mads Polling. Not sure what it adds, either. If I had bigger balls in the Dan Bern sense I would go all in and claim that the new Pole at Lytton Plaza was in honor of Steve Poltz. We will call this pole “Steve”.


Edit to add: the local paper had a story about a water treatment plant that the bureaucrats find salivary. If the deal goes through I will push to have it named Robert, for the former Led Zeppelin singer. Not to be confused with the hoax here about a bridge definitely not named for Pink Floyd.
