Mariza was in Denver last night. It was a real treat to hear her sing songs filled with beautiful longing and sadness.
She sang one of my favorite fados, “Primavera.”
At one point she had to ask a person in the front row what on earth they were doing with their cellphone, anyway.
Yum. David Olney + Coleridge.

Artist Jim Green’s sinks will sing solo, or in the round.
“The Black Hawk War, or, How to Demolish an Entire Civilization and Still Feel Good About Yourself in the Morning, or, We Apologize for the Inconvenience But You’re Going to Have to Leave Now, or, ‘I have fought the Big Knives and will continue to fight them until they are off our lands!'”
Happy Independence Day.
