Please see the statement below from Scott Kempner
“Well, just when we thought it was safe to go back in the water, or on a plane, or a stage, or pretty much anywhere, the powers of the Universe have decided, “Not so fast, pally”. As Eric reported just a few days ago, with the photo to prove it, he had an accident at home, and slipped and broke his fibula. You might remember that photo of him in that compression apparatus, and here today we present the follow-up to the compression apparatus – a full-on foot, ankle, leg, stabilizing boot. Judging by just the look of it, i would say it is mighty uncomfortable.

Della Mae, a five-woman country band, kicked off the Americana Music Association’s showcase at Pandora’s Discovery Den at the Gatsby with a set heavy on the bluegrass. The highlight came with a cover of the Rolling Stones’ “No Expectations”: slow, rootsy, sung with feeling by Celia Woodsmith, a quiet prayer for a closing door.
