Letter from editor: Embrace CoMo’s music
Columbia’s music scene has a li’l something for everyone.
Dear MOVErs and shakers,
I present to you MOVE’s Music Issue! Cue the air horns and trumpets and general fanfare.
Music is all around us in Columbia. You can turn the corner and hear a tune floating through the air.
On a sunny afternoon, you can walk down Ninth Street and see Raven Wolf C. Felton Jennings II performing outside of Lakota Coffee. The next minute, you’ll see a packed playbill for Rose Music Hall. You could even do some shopping and pick up a record or five from Slackers. That night, you have the option of catching a local band like A Simple Exchange at The Bridge or a national act like Iron and Wine at The Blue Note. Or, if you feel like picking up the microphone yourself, you can head over to Eastside Tavern for karaoke.
You can read about all these people and places in this special issue.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a casual listener or a music junkie, a tone-deaf dancer or a multi-instrumental virtuoso; there’s something for you and you and you in CoMo.
With that, happy reading and listening,
MOVE Editor Taylor Ysteboe
