McMenamins announces its first four Edgefield summer concerts...Steve Miller Band, Pink Martini, Victoria Justice and fun. Brilliant. The "fanny pack" series. Well, now they announce....Tony Bennett! Now, I am seriously not amused. I dig Tony Bennett...at the Venetian Room in 1971, or singing God Bless America at the World Series, or hearing I Left My Heart on the jukebox at last call at Sivoris....but fer crying out loud McMenamins....not this summer. We're the second greatest generation, the ones who invented Woodstock, Days on the Green, Beatles, Stones, Faces and Dead Kennedys...and now we're lining up for this? Can't wait for Rod sings The Andrews Sisters.
