Cantwell, Gomez, Jordan, Pipe, Whatever Brains, Whorecough
Nightlight, Chapel Hill
This is a release party for the excellent new Cantwell, Gomez & Jordan album, "Half-Finished Bobcat," which is the one where they all three sound like they're playing different parts something like 95% of the time, but then the other 5% of the time they lock in to the tightest groove imaginable.

Also there is a song named for me, obliquely, for which I am genuinely touched.
