A Dyke About Town: Loudon Wainwright entertaining

by Mercy Moosemuzzle - SGN A&E Writer

Storm vs. Sparks
Mercy and Cuteness went to see the Seattle Storm season opener versus the L.A. Sparks at Key Arena, May 18. Swin Cash, Le'coe Willingham, and Ashley Robinson have left the team. Tina Thompson, Ann Wauters, Shekinna Stricklen, Ewelina Kobryn, Alysha Clark, and Victoria Dunlap have joined. Lauren Jackson is playing for Australia's Olympic basketball team and will be out half the season.

Seattle dominated the first quarter 24-10. They maintained their lead so we went into halftime 35-24. The same was true of the third quarter, when Seattle led 56-42. In the last three minutes, they tied 62-62. Seattle took a one-point lead with a free throw, but L.A. then made a two-pointer and a three-pointer, giving them 67. Another Storm free throw took Seattle to 66. The Sparks made another two-pointer and two sets of free throws to win the game, 72-66. Mercy was very disappointed, since Seattle had been so strong throughout the game. The Sparks' Kristi Toliver was player of the game with 25 points.

Cuteness said, 'I missed Lauren Jackson. The team has a lot of new players. It is a whole new team, except Sue Bird, Katie Smith, and Tanisha Wright. Tina Thompson played well. She made a lot of three-pointers and is a seasoned player. She made 12 points. Ann Wauters made some mistakes - threw the ball away a few times and missed a free throw. Got some rebounds. She made some free throws and earned 17 points.'

Loudon Wainwright III
Reality joined Mercy for Loudon Wainwright III at the Triple Door on May 20, because Cuteness was at a lacrosse potluck. The house was full of enthusiastic fans who called out their requests. Reality was impressed that the waiter asked about food allergies. Mercy liked it that the valet unloaded her walker without having to be asked.

The opening act was Shelby Earl, a local singer-songwriter. Mercy thought Earl had a nice voice and guitar work. Reality thought she had a good strong voice. She has a new CD, Burn the Boats, coming out. High points were the title track, 'Beloved,' and 'Sea of Glass.'

Mercy thought Wainwright had a powerful voice and pleasing originals. Reality liked the singer's sense of humor, thought he found it a bit morbid. Wainwright also has a new CD coming out, Older Than My Old Man Now.

Standouts from the album were the title track 'The Here and the Now,' 'In C,' 'All in the Family,' 'My Meds,' 'Over the Hill,' 'Ghost Blues,' 'The Days That We Die,' and 'Something's Out to Get Me.'

Pearl Django
Mercy is looking forward to seeing Pearl Django at Jazz Alley. Band members include Troy Chapman (guitar), Ryan Hoffman (guitar), Rick Leppanen (bass), Michael Gray (violin), and David Lange (accordion). The group is a local band that has been playing since 1994. Their focus is the music of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli. Each of the musicians is excellent and evidences love of the music. They will be there May 29-30, celebrating their new CD, Eleven.
