Thank you to everyone who came out to Banjo Jim's last night, despite rain, war anniversaries, Wednesday ennui, and competing shows right in the 'hood. There really was a lot o' love in the room, and it was exactly the kinda live-music experience that leaves me feeling jolly for days afterward.

Banjo Jim's is run by nice, laid-back people who love music. Banjo Richard and Banjo Lisa were hospitable, helpful, supportive.

The soundguy was totally cute:

Cute soundguy!

The other acts were kind of amazing:

There was James Peter Lee, playing hypnotic space-cum-ethnic rondelets on lap steel and saz, with the lovely Mazz Swift on violin:

Lenny Kaye and his excellent rhythm section played a charming and sprightly set:

Followed by Adam Levy's soulful music-making:

There were not one but TWO dogs in the audience. Here's me and Cookie (and Laura, a human):

And we got paid. (Thanks, Liza!)
