Dead Souls in the Bedroom?

The above video by Gogol Bordello was recommended by my Tucson gang. We are heading out to Des Moines (the Hartford of the Midwest) tonight to see Jason Isbell open up for Cracker. Very excited. (About the show, Des Moines not so much. I think this will be the only the 2nd or 3rd time in the last eight years that I have lived in Iowa. Don't really know the city that well so I shouldn't really knock it. Not that I have met any great champions of the place either, see Bill Bryson etc...) I have not seen the full Cracker lineup in a while and this should be a great combo. I will post some photos from the show if and when I can.

P.S.
I highly recommend seeing the film Little Children. Hard to describe but it is memorable. I would also suggest avoiding the so called 'art' film, Old Boy Joy, even though it clocks in at a mere 76 minutes it was more painful to sit through than Hiroshima, Mon Amour.

Have fun. Just picture me in Iowa City at a high school choir concert being very, very jealous of you.

Didn't Old Boy make you hungry for fried dumplings?

Sorry I made a mistake. It was Old Joy I was bashing not Old Boy....

You know, I kind of liked Old Joy, 'specially how Will Oldham's belly kind of was a character of its own. But I can't wait for No Country For Old Men. Lars and the Real Girl is good, if you haven't seen that already.
