Composer/Percussionist Billy Fox came by to talk about the composer workshops he’s been conducting, his compositions, and the October 9 concert at MacPhail which will feature Twin Cities musicians playing his compositions.
The last couple of times I was in New Orleans, I saw a flyer tacked to a light pole and taped in a window for a group called the Zydepunks. Cajun, Irish, Jewish Punk is what accompanied the hand-drawn Social Distortion-like skeleton on the flyer. And each time they had already played, and I was seeing an old flyer. I took a picture of one, thinking one day I might actually catch this local NOLA band. Now I don’t have to wait until my next visit! KFAI got their debut record this week! I was so excited to share it during the 7:00 hour. We also heard Joseph Arthur and brand new Pert’ Near Sandstone. See you next week on pledge drive!
