Jazz of the Future, part two

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Industrial Jazz Group in, like, twenty years:

Actually, these photos depict the Get a Life Marching Band, the big hit at each August's Multnomah Days, here in PDX.

Supplementary (or actually, essential) reading on the importance of amateur music is here. I may have to comment on that soon, it's quite sharp.

Hi Alex -- Thanks much for reading and commenting! Yeah, I loved that piece on amateur music -- will post some kind of response soon. I look forward to reading your take on it as well!

Hi KT -- I'm afraid so. Don't ask what comes after fanny packs, though!
