The circle of beloved-cult-figure-degrees-of-separation is complete: Butler serves as audience at Wreckless Eric/Amy Rigby gig, goes home, listens to db's covers record on which he plays, which db's contained Will Rigby,which Will Rigby is the ex of Amy Rigby. And we haven't even covered the Stiff Records connections. The celestial orb, upon realization of this confluence, bursts into flames.

You could always head out I-78, take a nice southerly drive down 202 into PA and stay overnight in DOYLESTOWN, then take the much nicer PA Turnpike in the a.m. You'd even get fed, maybe catch a band in New Hope, and get to borrow an EZ-Pass for the toll plazas.

But NO, you need to suffer for your art.
