August 29, 2006


Today marks the one year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. I don't think anyone could have predicted the emotional (or political!) effects of this disaster, even a year later.

Singer-songwriter Grayson Capps is a New Orleans resident who lost everything in Hurricane Katrina. I met Grayson and got to see him perform in Nashville at the Americana Music Conference shortly after the disaster last September. His theme song from his current album at the time, If You Knew My Mind? A song called "Get Back Up." Grayson's a delight.

He's set to release his sophomore album Wail and Ride on September 26, but here's a link to the video for his first single from the album "New Orleans Waltz."

We love you, Grayson, and New Orleans.

Dublin is Not Punk Rock

I have 7 more weeks in one of the most un-punk-rock towns in the Northern Hemisphere. Really. Google Video is my friend, reminding me of good music and snarky bastards...

Darn it all, I like Campbell, Calif. Esp. the gluten free section of the Whole Foods in Campbell...
