Rants of an unreconstructed music geek
I've written about music for publications (hard copy and online) including the Dallas Observer, Fort Worth Weekly, I-94 Bar, First Church of Holy Rock and Roll, Polish Jazz (Poland), Shindig (UK), Funhouse (Italy), and The Big Takeover. I played guitar in Stoogeaphilia and made banging and scraping noises in Hentai Improvising Orchestra (see links).
