The esteemed blogger, college radio dj and music nut Wedge (CM) was my source to the incipient “figuring out” of another “dynamo-and-virgin” named Laura something, from Dublin, who produces blogs and concerts under two pseudonyms including Fenderhardt or something.
I will edit to add to get this straight.
I like the logo with the S F O F F.
I am not the only one who is deliberately confusing in cyberspace. Also, I enjoyed Joyce Randolph‘s concert yesterday at St. Thomas Aquinas, a benefit for St. Elizabeth Seton School. Randolph, like Laura, has a Stanford connection. I liked pushing the soulclap/gospel clap into something — and I drew a collaborator — more NOLA-esque, doubling on some claps, filling, moving the beat around in my admittedly clumsy and offbeat way, but I was also thinking about the Hebrew notion of “confusing Satan” which is the term that explains a Hebrew word about blowing the shofar on Yom Kippur in weird and unpredictable bursts, that pre-date Steve Lacy and Don Cherry by a considerable amount of well-spent breath. I like to think of Steve and Don leading a large all-shofar group somewheres. Maybe they will be channeled at this SF Offside, my mouth or blog to God’s ear or MacBook.
Somewhere I mentioned to someone my esteem for the bassist, composer, Stanford culture affiliate and featured attraction at this Laura Fenderhardt-produced shindig, S F O F, I am talking about Lisa Mezzacappa:
edit to add: Wedge’s blog is called “Memory Select” which is a Tim Berne reference. Here is what he wrote:
edit to add, four hours later: her name is Laura Maguire, is from Dublin, has a PhD from Stanford, worked recently there as staff, is affiliated with “Philosophy Talk” the radio show, and is producing with a partner this new music festival featuring mostly local artists, of broad acclaim. (And had me digressing into Irish Pat Lawler, the Maguire boxing clan and the Lower — not Outer — Sunset).
