I saw Dan Bern at the Winnipeg folk festival in 2000. I'm surprised nobody resurrected his 'Tiger Woods' given what's happened. For everyone else, it's pretty funny, give it a listen. What wasn't too long ago, but felt like another life, I volunteered/bartended at a DNC fundraiser at Housing Works (note - I was Housing Works volunteer, not a DNC volunteer). Bern made fun of everyone at that f'ing thing. You knew he was a screaming lefty, but he thought the party hacks were such pu****s.

Speaking of Winnipeg 2000 - if you like some of these guys, you should check out Peter Mulvey. No offense to Ben Harper, but Mulvey whoops his a** - he's one of the best live performers I've ever seen.

BTW Majormet - for a while I had a horseshoe on my door, and black cat on the floor. Still have the black cat, the horseshoe was construction paper. I bought tickets for me and my wife for 9/27 @ the Bowery Ballroom, and we scheduled the babysitter. It's my birthday present.

I credit Grand Prix, which I bought because I got a free copy of DGC Rarities (known for Counting Crow's 'Einstein on the Beach'), which had a TFC song on it ('Mad Dog 20/20'), for breaking the unfortunate hold that progressive rock had over me.

Cheers,
