    Great list.

    Speaking of Nowell Sing We Clear, did you go to their reunion/book-release show on the 16th? (Or their collective book-signing event at Everyone’s Books?)

    We had been looking forward to the concert ever since I ran into Fred Breunig at the library a couple months back and he told me about the concert. But when we went to try to get tickets a week or so before the concert they had already completely sold out.


    Anyway, hoping all is well. Stay warm. And thanks for the wonderful year’s worth of reviews and columns.

      Yes, I went to both. I was surprised at how few people turned up at the bookstore, but the Latchis was jammed. The concert, well, I’ve beengoing to their concerts forever; sad to realise this was probably the last of the last.

      Thanks for reading. Hope to see more of you, not sure how but maybe.
