I won't be leaving the house for a concert until Michel Graves is re-hired as the lead singer for the Misfits. Well not really. I may go see Modest Mouse. Ya won't get me to see the White Stripes until they get a full friggin' band on stage regardless of how "full" they sound! I gotta get my hands on that Jack White-produced Lorretta Lynn CD though.
And speaking of Mos Def, first time I saw him act was in Spike Lee's brilliant "Bamboozled". As far as I'm concerned he stole the movie. From that point forward he's never failed to impress me with his thesbian chops. He's really good. That's so righteous he's cast in Hitch Hiker's Guide.
Just got home from seeing Martha Wainwright at wunna the local venues. Boy, can she sing. Great songwriter, too. Would one classify her as a "singer-songwriter"? I never know when to apply that label. Anyhow, I wish her much success in her solo endeavors.
For those who might be interested, Martha'll be in the Bay and LA during the next few days.
