Jill Sobule plays her second show this week at Joe's tonight, bringing along her stories of heartbreak, whimsy and uplift. On Monday she previewed her new song "Super Tuesday", written for NPR which officially makes this week at Joe's (the musical wing of a not-for-profit institution, after all) a tax-deduction.

I dunno why, Michael, but, I love the way you draw the string instruments...or maybe I'm just still in love with that cello...damn.

Funny you should say. I was just thinking about this the other night.

There's something I find fascinating about the many different ways that musicians hold a guitar, finger a cello, bend over a bass or stand with a banjo. When watching, I find myself never being able to take for granted where an instrument is in relation to the player--the guitar is never where I think it is, the cello is never held the same by two people, the angle of the strumming hand and the bend of the chording fingers are ALWAYS unique--everyone dances with their partner a little different . . .

Some of my friends have asked me recently if I get tired of drawing the same scenes over and over and I've been trying to figure out how to tell them--it's never the same.
