Hey Baby, It’s The Fourth Of July

Two Flags by Jasper Johns.

It’s time for my annual Independence Day post. I don’t like fireworks, so all I’ve got for you is some American music. Put your hands together for Dave Alvin, Grateful Dead, Bruce Springsteen, Aimee Mann, and The Blasters.

Happy Birthday ‘Merica.
