And somehow it’s September already. I just had a very nice weekend up in the Northwest. I stopped by the Barsuk and Sub Pop offices, catching up with good friends and getting hooked up with some fantastic new CDs. I’m loving this Bassekou Kouyate & Ngoni Ba release. My family then headed out to Yakima for my cousin’s wedding. We were also able to get in some wine tasting. It was a joy to spend quality time with my extended family. I also had the pleasure of hanging out with Jesse LeDoux before heading back home.
