348/365/Happy Free-for-All

It’s been a tough year, but a pretty good live music year for me, especially given my limited time: Rachael and Vilray, kd Lang, Nicole Atkins, the Decemberists, Flanders Quartet, Courtney Barnett, STIG, lots of Hoagy Carmichael coverage at the jazzfest in Bloomington (where I developed a crush on Janiece Jaffe’s voice), Dayna Kurtz, Brubeck Brothers Quartet, Mary Elaine Jenkins/Lula Wiles, Frank Fotusky—some of these in small, intimate venues. Don’t know someone? Look them up!
