Last week I traveled from the cool green hills of England to my other home in the Arizona desert -- where it's hot, hot, hot, and after a winter of Dartmoor rain, I'm loving every minute of it.
Today's Monday Video, "The Battle of Cable Hogue," is in honor of the desert, and comes from a fabulously interstitial Tucson band, Calexico. I love these guys (though I'm ashamed to say that it took a Canadian, Charles de Lint, to introduce me to their music many moons ago) -- so I was pleased to discover that they're playing here in Tucson at the Rialto Theatre on Friday night. I'm taking Midori and her family along with me. Maybe we'll see some of you there?
