Big Jack Earl at Applefest & Eerie Film Festival

Lots of news this week.
If, like me, Applefest makes your skin crawl, then head to a place where that creepy feeling is demanded - The Eerie Horror Film Fest, in Erie PA from Oct 5-9.
However, make sure you're back in town on Saturday for Big Jack Earl's afternoon show at 1 pm at the Food Court, Fountain Park. On Sunday, they play at the Boston Garden at 12pm. Word is their playing around with drums on the new album. Mmmmmmmmm....percussion....

In sadder news, Pittsbugh native and America's pre-eminent 20th century playwright, August Wilson is dead. Ironically, I had to move to Ohio to be introduced to his cycle about Western Pennsylvania - no one even mentioned him at Franklin High School - likewise finding his plays in local libraries is pretty much impossible. A prophet without honor in his own land. It's no wonder, perhaps that he refused to move back here.

Ginsburg's "Howl" is 50 years old this month?! Party, anyone?

Gerald McBoing-Boing - the new hot thing among those wacky kids? Listen to him here.
