And he’s local!
Jim Walsh who’s been writing about local music, since, well I’ve been reading about it, is reading some of his favorites Friday night in Excelsior at the 318 Music Cafe:
Jim Walsh: Songs and Stories
I’ve always wanted to do this. I’ll read some of my fave columns and essays from over the years along with new material (all from a forthcoming collection), and play songs from my first two Mad Ripple CDS, “Sink and/or Swim” and “Her Tattoos Could Sail Ships,” and several new tunes. Really looking forward to it. Come baptize yourself in the waters of Lake Minnetonka if you can…
If I weren’t teaching, I’d be there. So, since I can’t go, I’m going to play one of my favorites, right now — Hüsker Dü’s Warehouse Songs and Stories on my record player.
