Institutions

| Posted on in Uncategorized

Just a quick reminder for any of you in the Manhattan area who happen to check the log between now and tonight…I’ll be playing at Bobby T’s, hopefully starting around 9:00pm. While I’m aware of the competition, it should be a fun show nonetheless. If nothing else, come have a few drinks with friends before you head to the cramped bar in the ‘ville.

Last Tuesday, the Religious Right of Kansas demonstrated overwhelmingly that they felt that homosexuals could do more damage to the institution of marriage than heterosexuals are already doing. While “gay marriage” is already illegal in Kansas, they felt it was important to be damn sure that civil rights would never be granted to civil unions. Just in case anyone didn’t read the news.

Personally, I think the effort and advertising dollars would have been better spent providing public counseling and assistance to troubled couples, but singer-songwriter-farmer-auctioneers don’t dictate public policy. That’s probably a good thing.

We’re still running the band naming contest. Submissions go to [email protected] We’ll be posting the submissions sometime within the next few weeks.

Big week of music this next. You’ll hear from me.
