Everyone knew Graham Nash would sell out World Café Live, even with another sold out performance at Free at Noon the following day and a second headlining show the following night.

It was a familiar setting, fans of many decades that had without a doubt stood at CSNY concerts years ago. Now they were just sitting, instead, with craft beer and waitresses. Continue reading →
