1. Project of the Day—In 1964, Bob Parsons bought his stepson Gram Parsons (who you may know from influential band The Byrds or his equally influential solo work) a place to perform music. That place was Derry Down, and it went on to host shows by Parsons and a bunch of other legendary musicians like Tom Petty and the Allman Brothers. The building’s since fallen into disrepair, but with some fixing up it could once again become a legendary place to hear music.
