That Was The Week That Was: November 17th, 2014

Mike Nichols Dead 2014

Mike Nichols Dead 2014

Golden Slumbers: We lost the great director Mike Nichols, the man behind “The Graduate”, “Carnal Knowledge” and “Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf” at the movies and just two I really loved from Broadway “The Play That I wrote” and “Spamalot”. David Ruffin, the temptations lead singer’s kid brother and Motown singer who had a smash with “What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted” also died . On a personal level, rock nyc’s  Edward Huerta wife Misty died at the age of forty (our remembrance here).

Live: A busy week of concerts, with the highlight David Bronson’s non-album release party for his January  release of his third CD Questions. With a filled to overflowing band and a filled to overflowing audience, he brought his intricate, clever, and very lovely songs to life.

Recorded: A pretty good week: Fred Hammond returned, Hippo Campus and Diarrhea Planet both released very good recordings, One direction  minute had a real return to all their strengths. The Savages 37 minute song is excellent.

Politics: Obama’s immigration slapdown of the GOP is a lesson in hard knuckled realpolitik. when you got nothing, you got nothing to lose folks.

Sports: No… just no. Oh well, at least the Knicks beat the Sixers.

Weather: winter came early.
