okay.  i have a confession.

i can only list a small handful of female musicians who i really truly love.

there.  i said it.

here’s my short list:

patti smith.

odetta.

chan marshall.

billie holiday.

nina simone.

dolly parton.

and i’m sure i forgot someone, but really, that’s my list, with patti smith being almost insurmountable.

but, today, we had an inspired, impromtu dance party in the kitchen to the heartless bastards.

erika wennerstom is crazy fantastic.

and their third album, the mountain, – a good time.  here’s “the mountain” from “the mountain.”:

i’m trying really hard not to feel like a fool for it being february 20th.  recognizing that they JUST played the gravity lounge on february 11th (the above clip is from an in-studio at WNRN in c’ville).  i’m 9 days behind, folks. sigh.

so, go dance in your kitchen too…
