Hi, it's yer Friendly Neighborhood Midnight Rider and the Iron DJ in for an ailing Eric this week, kicking off a 6-hour tour that coincided with the hastily-organized first running of the Andromeda-to-Milky Way Star Yacht Classic! The Voice cried, "WANNARACE???" and I just had to drop Jay Chattaway's big-band epic "Andromeda" on y'all by way of celebration!
This week, The Pop Shop celebrates Paul Simon's 75th b-day and previews two local club shows: Tommy Keene/The Leatherwoods and The Favorite Things' CD Release Party. Also oldie/newie double plays from Cotton Mather, Teenage Fanclub and The Explorer's Club.
It's another tangos show this week, and it's dedicated to Trudy "Estrella Lucía" Gustafson. Trudy brought two of these tangos to vibrant life, performing one at the Ordway and the other at the Walker. Olé, Estrella Lucía!
