  • Emily Wolfe: “I love to play live, and I love a rowdy audience.” (10/31 at KFN)

    For those still looking for plans for Halloween night, might I suggest Emily Wolfe at the perpetually-decorated-for-the-holiday Kung Fu Necktie?  “I love to play live, and I love a rowdy audience,” says the guitar virtuoso during a recent phone chat, before adding, “We may dress up, we’ll probably play...

    The other night on Twitter, I invited ZZ Ward fans to tweet me questions they might have, in preparation for my latest chat with the chanteuse whose personal blend of soul, blues, and rock has earned the moniker “dirty shine.”  To my surprise, Ms. Ward herself wanted to get...
