Oh Norman, so sweet, but so cruel.
People, we have a thing in April called the Norman Music Festival. And wonder of wonders, both Dirty Projectors, who made my 2009 album of the year, and Leon Russell who is the absolute nuts are playing. And it's free. And it's an easy walk from my office.
So what is my beef?
THEY ARE BOTH PLAYING AT THE EXACT SAME TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!
How can this be? What kind of cruel joke is this? Do the Dons of Norman think no one could possibly like both the DPs and Leon?
How wrong they are, people, how wrong they are.
I am not making this up. It is a two day festival and there are no other acts nearly this good playing (sorry Evangelicals, you're good but not that good). Yet there it sits in black and white on the event's webpage: Sunday night, Main Stage 9:30 pm Dirty Projectors. Sunday night Jagermeister Stage 9:00 pm Leon Russell.
This is epic FUBAR, people.
Crap like this never would have happened to me if I had lived in the 1880s!
