The Dees!

What a great, fun, moving, hilarious and just plain energetic show the Deedle Deedle Dees put on today at the Iron Horse. I will post some pictures later (probably on our Facebook page), but for now, you can check out this video of their new song, "Susan B. Anthony," off their forthcoming record, "American History + Rock 'n' Roll = The Deedle Deedle Dees," due out on Halloween.

This song, as long-time listeners know, is based on a time in my elementary school days when we were assigned to do a book report about a biography. I chose Susan B. Anthony. After it was done, the teacher notified us that we'd be expected to present the book report to the class dressed as the subject of the biography. And that's how I ended up wearing a dress to school. I mentioned this in passing to Lloyd once, and this song was born.

Thanks to everyone who came out, and special thanks to the Dees for putting on such a great show in tribute to David Banigan-White. We raised a bunch of money to support cooperative arts and music in the Valley, had a fun party in his memory, and all left smiling, even if we cried a little too.
