Who’s in?

After a long dry spell comes a flood of shows I hate to miss. Who wants to join me?

Flogging Molly
March 4, Tabernacle
I may skip this one, but I could be persuaded . . . 

Modest Mouse
March 7, Tabernacle  
Saw them open for R.E.M. last summer and would be glad to see them again.

Mr. Fuss has spoken for my extra ticket. Get your own if you want to come with. 

Victor Wooten

Doke introduced the 14-year-olds to this and, after only one beer, I promised to take them. I think Bruce Springsteen said he’s in, too.

Wouldn’t miss this for all the world. I just hope the Sadies are with her.  She has a new album in a few weeks.

That 1 Guy
April 3, 5 Spot
Too fun. Must go again. You won’t regret it if you come along. 

Afro Cuban All-Stars
April 4, Variety 
Doke and the Martinez Boyz say they’re in.

Robyn Hitchcock
April 7, Variety
I guess this is a bit much for one week. I probably won’t make this one.

Insurgent soundtrack

Chumba . . .

I can feel myself entering a Bloodshot Records listening fest. Something made me hit AccuTwang at work today, and I’m feeling the need for some Sadies (I do love those Sadies and wish they’d come south this winter for a visit.) Neko Case, Jon Langford, Trailer Bride, Devil in a Woodpile, Moonshine Willy (I want to marry that bass!) . . . it could be a while before I extract myself from this indugence. 

. . . and Wumba?

Damn good thing, because I have two really nasty Chumba Wumba songs stuck obsessively in my head. (This is all Jaffner’s fault.) They need to go, especially “Homophobia. The worst disease. You can’t love who you want to love in times like these!” The other one can’t be repeated in polite company.
