MxPx‘s “Move to Bremerton” is still one of my favorite songs – it was on the band’s 1996 release, Life in General. The masters of the sharp and fast punk song are here tomorrow for a show at El Corazon, and maybe there will be some new songs on the set list from their forthcoming CD. I’m also a fan of their excellent cover version of A-ha’s “Take on Me”.
On Monday night, March 28th Jazz Alley gets Michelle Shocked. There are many reasons to love Shocked – her voice, her songs – but she also recently brought that voice to Wisconsin as part of the protest against union busting. Wherever you stand politically, you must support free speech.
