    Too many lies,
    democracy rising democracy now.
    Rage against the machine.

    Honesty compassion intelligence guts.

    No more extortion blackmail bribery division.
    Divided we fall.

  2. You guys got scooped on the Rothbury festival. I am surprised I haven’t seen any chatter. Looks promising. Phil, Gordo, YSMP w/ Fish, Bisco, MMW. Of course, it wouldn’t be a festrival without Franti. Is he playing? Why…yes, he is! It’a Madison House production, so they were contractually obligated to include Kang and Nershi’s new projects. How long before Keller and his WMD’s are announced? Any minute, I am sure. The VIP amenities are ridiculous…and pricey!

  3. I got to watch the Alison Krauss/Robert Plant concert last night and it was really, really good. Relaxed, showing their ease with each other, very entertaining, great choices of covers. Really good stuff.
