Dancing in commiseration

Over the years, in writing about music, I've found myself returning again and again to a particular quote. On the special features of the DVD for Stop Making Sense, David Byrne has an absurdist segment where he interviews himself. When one of Byrne's doppelgangers notes that Byrne has a bad voice,

“The Light We Hear”

I introduced Andy Behrle's audio sculpture show "The Light We Hear" in this column last week but did not see the show until after that column was printed. Now, after seeing the show, I offer a more in-depth look at it.  Behrle, who lives near Yakima, seems to be something of

The Weepies

For a period of time that seemed to last forever, but what actually amounted to probably less than a decade, starting in the mid-'00s, a virus known as folk-pop spread across the land.

There are about 4,600 miles between Liverpool, England, and northeastern Texas, but those vanished when 9-year-old Dave Walser first encountered the Fab Four on The Ed Sullivan Show. It was early 1964, and even Walser knew his life had just changed. "I'd been playing guitar since I
