My boy Bill Callahan (smog) is playing a show here tonight in Missoula and I am at this very moment preparing myself mentally. It’s not too often Missoula gets a concert of this high caliber and I can almost guarantee every hipster and their grandma will be attending this one. The concert is at a bar, The Badlander, and I am slightly worried that the place is going to be packed to the eyeballs with sweaty drunk fools and if you are a Smog fan you know this is not the ideal sort of setting for a show of this type. Oh well, maybe I am wrong and I’ll be able to leisurely stand feet away from Bill and gaze into his eyes longingly as he croons to me in his majestic baritone.

Smog – Feather By Feather MP3

Here is a sweet little mix for you that is based off of my last radioshow. Don’t pass up on Dean Martin and Ricky Nelson singing, “My Rifle, My Pony, and Me” from the incredible Howard Hawks western, “rio bravo”……that is the true gem of this set. Oh, and the Odetta album, “odetta sings Dylan”, is totally and completely amazing…listen to the two cuts from this mix and see if you agree.

The Monks / 1965 Demo Tapes / There She Walks

Frank Zappa and The Mothers of Invention / Absolutely Free / Status Back Baby
