Monday Earworm: Trombone Shorty

The very best opening act at a concert I’ve ever seen, hands down, is Trombone Shorty. He and his band Orleans Avenue opened for the Red Hot Chili Peppers here in Houston in January 2017, and that remains among the very best concerts I’ve ever attended. (And OMG there’s some significant competition for that honor. Seriously.)

I would highly recommend seeing Trombone Shorty whenever and wherever you get the opportunity to do so; they put on a tremendously high-energy live show. This track, which I’ve chosen because I’m currently experiencing a long weekend, is really quite mellow compared to my experience of them.

Do enjoy!


…and I’m sorry it’s late. It has been quite a season thus far, and Han and I both needed some time to hunker down for a bit over the holidays and in January.

BUT the new zine is out now! Subscribers and regular readers, it’s on your way to you (if you don’t already have it!).

You’ll note an article in here informing you about all the exciting changes coming to the zine this year, like a new production schedule, themed issues, submissions guidelines, new subscription rates, and ad space. Plus, this issue has all kinds of goodies like fiction, poetry, art, and a recipe for The Best Soup That Has Ever Been Created. (That’s my unofficial title. It’s Han’s lasagna soup, and it really is extraordinarily delicious. Way better, in fact, than actual lasagna. Try to change my mind.)

If you want a copy, drop me a line in the comments! (If you’re already accustomed to getting the zine, it’s probably on its way to you now, but feel free to double-check with me if you want to.)
