No Tix at RX

The Record Exchange sent out a couple of messages via Twitter last week to let their followers know that they are not selling tickets for this year's Outlaw Field Concert Series at Idaho Botanical Garden, which includes performances by Reckless Kelly, the Indigo Girls, Bonnie Raitt, Taj Mahal and Lyle Lovett. And it may be a moot point soon anyway, since tickets were offered to IBG members first and are likely to sell out quick.
