The Pretenders- Criminal
It's Chrissie Hynde's birthday. Wanna guess her age? It's difficult for me to fathom, but she's 56 years old. The first Pretenders album was a staple of my college years. I kept buying Pretenders albums, hoping that each one would approach the quality of that first release. None did, but many contained lovely songs like "Criminal." It's from the out-of-print Mitchell Froom production Packed!.
Wonderful Kansas City chanteuse Megan Birdsall recently received some bad news. She's seen here dissing Topeka before singing "Wichita Lineman."
Kansas City Click: OK Jones plays a free show tonight at the River Market Brewery.
The best place to be Saturday and Sunday is the Crossroads Music Fest. From Malachy Papers to Lucero, and from Lights & Siren to Eleni Mandell, it's a rich lineup.
