The trouble with having a bunch of brilliant guests like Sooj and K., Lee, and Amal light up your house and grace it with their presence, is their sudden but inevitable departure. I disapprove, and miss them already.
But! That's not why I open the compose window, nor is it to describe the delight that was these last couple of days. It is to say:
Locals! Amy Steinberg is playing here in Cleveland, this Thursday (tomorrow):
The Nickel - 4365 State Road, Cleveland, OH, 44109 - (216) 661-1314 ($5 Cover, show starts at 9pm)
I was a fan of her music before (of the feel of her voice and the incredible preciseness of some of her lyrics), but we got to meet her and have dinner with her and S.J. last night, and she has an amazing presence in person. And I have just found out, earlier, that she was playing in town this week!
If you like S.J.'s music, there's a good chance that you will like Amy's.
catvalente and I are going Thurs night, and you should too.
[Edit] Ok, looks like we won't make it. Cat is behind on her writing deadline, will need the full evening to catch up.
