It dawned on me last night as I was walking into Columbia's Blue Fugue to hear Sometimes Three play (www.sometimesthree.com)
that I had absolutely no idea what FUGUE meant.
So I asked around.
Whew! the collective imagination (and persuasive lies) of friends & strangers.
No one was more convincing with their definition than Josh, [S]3 guitarist, who started to explain, in great detail, the characteristics of The Fugue as a winged mythical creature.
I was totally buying it.
Till Parker interrupted saying "you're making this up." Does it mark me a geek that I came home & looked it up? -- now wait a minute, just used the online dictionary as I glanced thru email....hmmm, that doesn't discount it, does it??
Regardless of whether or not YOU know [knew!?] the meaning of FUGUE, they sounded great AND you can now find Sometimes Three
Kim and I DIDN'T bring cameras, and then I felt guilty, but look, LOOK, I took these pictures WITH MY PHONE & thanks to BlueTooth sucked it right into the Mac without a corded connection in sight.
Still giddy about that!

P.S. an after-thought EDIT:
...you know, maybe it was Mike, [S]3 drummer who spoke of winged mythical creatures....
Come on, they all [re: good-looking & talented musicans] look alike!?
Or was it that last cosmo with the cucumber creating the haze? Cucumber? ~ am SURE I'm not mistaken about that one, were they out of limes or is it like a signture statement. hmmm....
