While the rest of the world is tripping over Tom Brady, Idol, and Harry Shearer ditching The Simpsons, I’m sweating in Shreveport digging up some blues for a new album. This place is hot, sticky, and full of fried food. It’s also got some deep musical soul that’s been feeding my days and nights. But in the late night hours, I’m in my hotel room dreaming of the big TV stage and seeing bands throw down.
Watch Waiting for Guffman dir. by Christopher Guest. An aspiring director and the marginally-talented amateur cast of a hokey small-town Missouri musical production go overboard when they learn that someone from Broadway will be in attendance.
