A break from serious matters for a focus on music...

Last night I strolled down to the 930 Club, one of the top indie rock venues in the country to catch Cat Power. The band delivered as some of the best rock-blues-folk fusion since Janice Joplin.

Next week, however, is the season's big event, featuring Spoon and the Shins in concert. If you haven't caught Spoon's latest album, listen to this review at NPR, and catch their buzz generating performance last week at Saturday Night Live (youtube above).
