I listen to dead people.

E and I have gone to a few concerts together, all of them bands she likes. I've enjoyed them or found them at least provocative and interesting, Andrew Bird was by far the best. But I went on Ticketmaster to see if I could find shows for artists I already like or at least whose songs I know. I found Buddy Guy and BB King. Everyone else I'd like to see barring Stevie Wonder is dead---Marvin Gaye, Isaac Hayes, James Brown---or I'm ashamed to say nearly so old I'm forced to wonder if the show will be any good. Please surprise me. Otherwise I retreat fully into memories of a time and a place I can't remember because I was never there.
