Those of you who've tolerated me over the years know I'm a sucker for
a good crime song, so please forgive the blatantly commercial
interruption, but anyone in the Los Angeles area with a taste for that
sort of musical nastiness -- and doesn't mind a drive into the High
Desert of the Antelope Valley -- might be interested in this:
This Sunday night, about seven, April 26th, Butler's Coffee in
Palmdale is presenting Robert Fisher of The Willard Grant Conspiracy
in a special unplugged performance with Anthony Loffredio of Barn
The Willard Grant Conspiracy has a large cult following all over the
world, and are acclaimed for their dark, moody, noirsih take on
Americana; a unique blend of murder ballads, folk songs and just plain
weird America; sorta like the Basement Tapes meets the Velvet
Underground meets Flannery O'Connor meets about a zillion B-films. To
see them in a small coffee house, where fifty people is a crowd, is
definitely going to be something else.
I'm running the show, and the price is right -- it's free -- so if
anyone's interested, lemme know. If enough Rare Birds are planning to
show up, maybe we can meet a little earlier and grab a few beers at
the bar across the street. The subject of crime fiction may even rear
its ugly head.

We now return to our regularly scheduled programming...
