|Billy and me at Ram's Head On Stage|
I've had the good fortune of seeing Billy Bragg perform twice over the years. The first time was in the 90s opening for the Barenaked Ladies (that was kind of a strange pairing) and then again headlining a couple years ago at the Ram's Head On Stage (see the photo to the right). He's playing there again next month, but unfortunately, I can't attend.
Personal history aside, he's got a new album out and I've been hearing a ton of good things about it. But that really doesn't surprise me as he always brings the goodness whether he's singing about the political or the personal (word is Tooth & Nail is more of the latter). Here's the video for the fantastic first single from the record.
