K8 and I walked from the Corlears Hook ferry stop across Lower Manhattan a couple weeks back. We were near City Hall and both of us were like, wait, wasn't Winnie's right here? And then I realized it had been the restaurant we were right in front of -- and that the sign was even still there!

Relevant only because I think the last time we were there was with the Rogers Sisters. Karaoke with the pros!

In Brooklyn? Indeed! Caught McGroovey's band and the PF63. Fun night! We *almost* then made it into Manhattan for another show, but inertia claimed us. Instead we drank a bunch of beer in a loud bar.

This is right up my alley: resources = making stuff in the arts. Sick of rich kids getting successful in music because they had the money to record, tour, and compose/write but could somehow still pay rent and bills. I had to keep my day job and then gave up and went back to school to get a different career. Also fascinating how art school informed creation of new forms of music. Will buy and read the book!

I think the only time I saw the Gang of 4 love was in 1984 on the Hard tour, at the Chance in Poughkeepsie. I think Steve Goulding of the Mekons was on drums. All the new Hard songs sounded soooo much better than the studio versions. Great show.
