I occasionally go to the websites of some of my favorite musicians to see if they are touring anywhere near here. I usually strike out and today was no exception. However, I was interested to see that Iris DeMent is playing at the Cat's Cradle in Carrboro tomorrow night (June 28). If you don't have other plans, you should go see her. As far as I am concerned, she is a unqiue voice in an increasingly homogenized music scene and is one of the best folk/country artists out there today.
For the rest of you, here is a video of her most popular song.
Shit. I don't usually check this thread. Totally missed the Iris DeMent thing. That sucks. I live less than a mile from the Cat's Cradle.
Probably my fault. I thought about sending you a PM, but didn't.
As it was, my wife dragged me to see Chuck Mangione at Jazz in June on Saturday night. It wasn't completely horrible, although I could have done without the localized little thunderstorm that popped up and soaked us but good.
No, no, PMs are great. Lots of times I don't check on a thread--Lou FCD is moderator here now--and so PMs get to me quicker than other things. But Cat's Cradle often escapes my attention. Please send future announcements like that. BTW, I only know Chuck Mangione from King of the Hill episodes.
