Get Out to A Band and A Movie Theatre

I love both going to movie theatres and live shows so if you can combine the two, I’m usually in.   Tonight at Cinefamily it’s a win-win in their  “band and a movie” feature.  The  band is No-Cal indie folk artist Cass McCombs.  The movie he’s chosen to showcase is the 1971 drug addled film […]

Reworking the catalogue

Earlier this year, Van Morrison released “Reworking the Catalogue” whereupon Van reworks a number of his lesser known songs and reinterprets them through a duet with a different partner for each tune.  It mostly works because these songs are not untouchable Van standards and can be listened to and appreciated for their fun, looseness and  creative arrangements.
