Each holiday season the Salvation Army bell-ringers take up residence at the entrances of various retailers throughout town. And each holiday season I feel that twinge of guilt because I don’t drop any money in the bucket. Sure, the Salvation Army might be helping feed, clothe, and house the poor, but it’s all done with a heaping helping of Jesus.
Back in the mid-80s I became a regular at the legendary Minneapolis nightclub First Avenue & the 7th Street Entry. Every Tuesday night my friend John and I could be found there enjoying DJ Kevin Cole’s Club Degenerate. Cole played the coolest alternative tunes of the day and the past, along with whatever else hit his fancy. Those nights were almost always great fun and we rarely missed a Tuesday night at First Avenue.
The poster was a member of the band! How cool is the internet?!
And Speaking Of Mass Shootings
Two more have occurred since I last did a show. It’s really frustrating the apparent frequency at which these shootings are happening. They are still very rare, but that doesn’t make them less impactful.
