I can’t be there — I could have done this weekend, but Sunday’s date conflicted with Merola and some of the others didn’t call for me — but if you are in San Jose and looking for something free to do, try the Symphony Silicon Valley concerts!

Read about it here … or just read below since I’m doin’ the cut & paste thing:
