What a week already..

..survived Jim's birthday, hung out with Mr. Doe at his Bing Lounge set for KINK and at the Millennium instore....and now just a quick note on a couple of my picks for the end of the week. Colin Lake, formerly a local boy now living in New Orleans, will be playing a local show Friday at Jubitz's Ponderosa Lounge. These shows are way too seldom now and if you haven't heard Colin play lap steel and sing, you are missing a bet!! He's channeling some old soul. Tomorrow night, Dave Alvin and the Guilty Men, with Los Straitjackets opening at the Aladdin Thursday night. And then, get ready, TBA, PICA's music art fest and Musicfest NW open same weekend in two weeks!!

Great recommendations from ms. xmass ... Dave Alvin tonight, Colin Lake on Friday... will throw a few more in the mix, like the Decemberists tonight and tomorrow at Edgefield, and Lloyd Jones with full band and horns at Jimmy Mak's on Friday.
