Good luck to SF Offside music series and logo

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).
