Apparently showing up 12 hours before opening doesn't get you first place in line. But at least my chance of getting something I want is actually realistic.

People seem to be missing the larger point that people are condemning this legislation in whatever way they can. For Wilco that means canceling this show. It sucks for fans, but queer people are...

I was considering You Won't Know too but went with Tommy Gun. I bet that all the cover requests he gets will be for Brand New songs.

i feel very strangely about this. Messing with BN songs always seems to detract from the original, but i do like this reimagining of Limousine. Not sure if I can ever divorce it enough from the...

I met Buddy a few times when I was younger and never really got a douche vibe from him, but maybe it was situational.
