>>_BUT IT'S A GREAT DAY JOB...

I'm often asked if I work a "day job". The answer is yes, but it's a great day job and I wouldn't have it any other way. I work at Stern Grove Festival, a free summer concert series in San Francisco.

If you've never been, you owe it to yourself to experience a San Francisco tradition--this is the 68th Season. If you have been, you need to come back and see the amazing renovations that will make every concert more enjoyable (better seating, sound, stage, etc.)

Check out the concert listing. I am personally most excited for Ladysmith Black Mambazo (South African) and The Funk Brothers (Motown), and am also looking forward to BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet (Cajun) and daKAH Hip Hop Orchestra.

>>_MY MUSIC PICKS

Got some great CDs and some so-so records recently. I hate when I order records online and when they arrive they're just not quite what you thought. The CDs are definitely worth checking out, though.

New CD Picks:

- Kaiser Chiefs "Employment" (Universal Records)
- Mike Doughty [of Soul Coughing] "Skittish" and "Rockity Roll" (ATO Records)

Classic CD Picks:
In my early teens, my brother gave me dubbed cassette tapes of albums he liked. The music was intense and seemed cool beyond my possible understanding at the time. The following are part of my continuing efforts to get all those albums on CD...

- Various Artists "This are Two Tone" (Chrysalis Records)
- Sisters of Mercy "First Last and Always" (Elektra/Asylum Records)
- Fugazi "Repeater" (Dischord Records)
- Naked Raygun "Throb Throb" (Homestead) ** RECOMMENDED! **

Record Picks:

- Cirez D "Teaser / Lollipop"(Joia)
- Various Artists "Doshhammer Mixes EP" (Max.I)
- Julian Sandell (Liberator) "Funeral Songs E.P" (4x4)
