Hey, want to hear a profoundly uninteresting story? Sure you do.
The first time I met Judson McKinney was at the Echo during the first Manhattan Murder Mystery show I ever saw. Judson and his wife and collaborator Mary were on the patio handing out demo CDs wrapped in newspaper. Fort King had just finished an unexpectedly low-key (I thought I was going to a punk show) yet brilliant set.
And now, it appears, everything has come full circle. In a way. Or something like that. Full rhombus. And you know what that means, don't you? The end must be near.
But, until the end comes, let's drink and listen to music.
As far as I know, there don't exist any flyers for this show. So, to do my part as presenter, I decided to design one myself. And by design I mean "design." By which I mean I took two minutes out of my busy day to make this silly looking thing on my office computer:
If you're wondering, that bird is a bustard, and that stylish typeface is whatever the default font is on MS-Paint.
So please do me and yourself a personal favor and come out and celebrate the physical release of Judson's masterful album, Drink the Wine. From what I hear, his band will be playing every song on the record, so you can listen before you buy or whatever.
