It's pretty clear that we're at the end of an era. Less apparent - but perfectly obvious - we are at the beginning of a new era. These things get murky.
But we are happy to celebrate both endings and beginnings, so we do. Dimmy Jean performs the last holiday song. The cast at The Last Summer Ball at the Cosmos is up to 7 this time and it's pretty psychedelic. Thad Williams shows us what it means to be present. The Roadside Hobo Band swapped instruments with fun results. Bill Mooney offered reassurance and Michelle Allen offered an angry poem.
More than once we've reassured a guest artist by saying, "Well, at least you don't have to follow Sharon Lane." This time we turned it around and gave Sharon a tough act to follow.
