On Friday I saw Dead Spells play at Seattle’s Highline. I really like them. And that sentence reveals a source of frustration – I can’t write about music at all. I like their music, they sound good. Awesome prose, Scott. It’s only a matter of time before Rolling Stone contacts me for some freelance work. I’ve used that joke before.

I sometimes think that I’ll try to develop that skill, even if just a little, by reading more album reviews and interviews. But I doubt that’s going to happen. My photos will have to do. I’ve included a few from the Sterling Serpent set, too.
