It has something to do with private investors financing and arena in the Natomas areas. Now there are competing plans, because the other group of landowners wants to press on with their plan. What a mess.
This is really weird. The Fiery Furnaces are playing at Harlow's on April 26th. Will anyone go? Some local band is supposed to open. I wonder who they'll get?
