Tallest tale

I thought I bought this cd merely because I liked the cover art but must have somehow known it or he was booked by Billions, was playing Lolapalooza in Chicago — where I was born — and is coming to Fox Theatre in September. Good people at Rasputin in South Mountain View had it on an endcap which also still slays me quite often:

edita: and then jambase ten minutes ago tells me, as I am trying to log off, that they or it or he is going on tour, time being of essence and all that. 2) is from Sweden; 3) conjures Woody Guthrie who is turning 100, or what’s left of him is, rather; 4) also at Newport Folk. 5) originally I was going to snarkily post that a new restaurant in downtown Palo Alto is called Tacolicious and a blurb in local rag says they are hip and they name-check “the Shins”. When Taco Bell has a new burrito called “The Shins — burrito” then we are all completely f —–.

edit to add, taco not tall: the tiniest bit of research shows that Taco stand is in the Mission on Valencia so it may be cool. Terry and I were just at Puerto Allegre, where I liked the solo mariachi guitar singer guy and the art, a Frida Kahlo tribute curated by Bird Levy Strain of Polu Manu Productions. I ate not long ago at P.A. with Francisco Ferndandez of Ferocious Few, the famous defiant busker guy who I vow to bring to the 94304 soon enough; Leah Garchik had an item about some buskers in town from NOLA and I meant to ring her about Ferocious Few, who had their gear stolen. I will try the taco stand hereabouts soonenoughs.
