If you could arrange the reunion of a great band and concert tour what would it be? What group what you pick? Please share your thoughts as I tell you about an event this evening in Durham.

Former News & Observer columnist Geoff Edgers, who currently works for the Boston Globe, has an excellent entry in this year's Full Frame Documentary Film Festival. Geoff produced a documentary on his attempt to reunite the 1960's British rock band The Kinks. He didn't have much success but he had fun trying. Two founding brothers in the band can't stand each other and refuse to reconcile. "Do It Again" is the name of the film and includes an interview with Sting among many notables. Geoff's film will be shown tonight at the festival in Durham at 8:00PM followed by a discussion at Carolina Theatre.

I think my choice for a reunion would be a legendary Irish band called The Bothy Band. What about your choice?

Thanks for the pollen discussion. The winner of the Bill Leslie & Lorica-Concert Singers of Cary tickets will be announced Monday. Plus, we'll have some more giveaways next week.
