Before the playlist...went to see Billy Bragg on Friday night up at the Cedar Cultural Center. Outstanding show--one of the best I've ever seen, really. Good political banter, great songs, and fun interaction with the audience. If you're not yet a Billy Bragg fan, check him out... And if you're one of those serious fans, I'd really appreciate a note about what I should be sure to explore, buy, etc. (firstname.lastname@example.org). I know some of his work but after the show I'd really like to learn more...
