Cafe Du Nord and Jill Sobule

Cafe Du Nord
Couldn’t ask for a nicer end of a Monday. Ok, the picture is of the bar but I like this bar. 🙂 and I’d feel weird taking a picture of Jill on my phone. Plenty of pictures will be available soon in my soon-to-be-open music related website. If I ever make one. 🙂

Peter Mulvey

YEAH!!!! He’s coming back to Cali. Three shows I can go see. And a fourth I can wrangle over.

Dunno if anyone noticed (since my site isn’t all that popular. fine by me. those that care, I say) but I’ve added an MP3 on the right side of the homepage. I’ll be putting songs I love and enjoy over there. I’m gonna update it so that you can go back and hear past songs (Macromedia Flash will be required) soon, but for now, enjoy Peter singing a Townes Van Zandt song. I discovered this song by listening to Nancy Griffith. She’s got a great story about this song. I’ll see if I can find it amongst my many recordings of her shows.

And please, do yourself a favor, go see him. He’s a local Milwaukee artist and is amazing, funny, friendly, etc.

cathy funny music

songs that could have my name in the title, but for whatever reason do not

Inspired by a posting I discovered over here

And why must it always be the laundry mat. I have in-unit laundry now. <ttthhhpppptttt> Why can’t someone write a song about a doormat, or a matte painting, or a matte finish. 🙂
