For Those About To Rock.


Sarah Peter's Being American opens at Winkleman tonight. It's like Nikki Sudden wrote a concept album about how Robbie Robertson learned to play guitar listening to old blues records but didn't realize that they used a slide to get that sound. Except, well, Peters doesn't sing. Her drawings do though, so this should be good.

WE SALUTE YOU!! Well put, Brent, the singing drawing part. I love looking at the inhabitans of Sarah's world and seeing the strange expressions on the faces-- feeling displaced and content at the same time. It's a landscape of wonder.

Doc Watson taught himself how to play the guitar by listening to the radio when he lived on Pangea, he didn't know that there were guitar player and bass players, so he taught himself highs and lows at the same time. Word. And that dude's blind. BLIND!!!!
