'Paul Bullock Encore' planned for Friday at Tornado Gallery

By: Anonymous | Blog: Center Stage

For one reason or another, there have been three or four events (one being a play) thus far in 2009 that I was forced to miss -- and which I regret missing to this very day. And indeed, one was street poet Paul Bullock's return to the spotlight with his Feb. 28 concert at the Tornado Gallery.I had interviewed Paul in advance; I had planned to be present on Feb. 28. Those plans had to change.

Things Jill and I heard at the LSO concert besides the music

By: Anonymous | Blog: Center Stage

The lovely and talented Jill and I have fought conflicting hours, meetings and illnesses, but we actually had an almost-date on Friday night!I say almost only because, while we finally were able to attend the same event together, we still were coming from two directions and needed to meet there.Mind you, we almost didn't make it.
