Thanks, Spirit, for that news.
Here is some more information about the tribute to Tom at Dance Spree on Friday night mentioned below:
Dance Spree was Tom's home dance, and for years and years he was famous for arriving there a bit before midnight, just when the DJs thought the night to be winding down, plunging himself spiritually into the dance floor & injecting it w/a bonus wave of energy. All the Dance Spree DJs knew exactly what the phrase "Tom Time" meant!
Over the past couple of days Dance Spree DJs past & present have been compiling a list of songs that we associate w/Tom, & this friday night, at "Tom Time," we will play a mini-set of those songs to remember & celebrate him. They run the range one expects at Spree, from mournful and spiritual to jubilant & even silly.
We hope that all of you who have danced with Tom over the years, & especially during that end-of-the-night time, his time, will come by (by around 11:30pm or so) and share in a community dance for him.
If you have a song you know should be part of that set, please do share it!
We will of course also be remembering Tom, and devote time for sharing, during the community circle.
