song of the day: freakwater's "good for nothing"

The Mercury Lounge, especially when full, is a tough place to take photos, but, hey, it was worth a shot.
And yet our photographic challenges had little effect on Freakwater's stellar, Smothers Brothers-esque performance (that's Catherine Irwin in the background (red) and Janet Beveridge Bean in the foreground (blue)) in New York on Thursday night.
We also very much enjoyed the opening set by John Parish and company.
Both John and Freakwater can be found domestically on Chicago's Thrill Jockey label (those with too much computer free time might want to consider entering the label's uber-unique Mash Up Contest (deadline November 9)).

Anywho, symbolic hats off to Freakwater. Which means we're making last night's opening number, "Good for Nothing" (from their End Time CD), our song of the day.
