Dream Team Double Header – Judy Collins & Wizz Jones

Randomness – it can be a great thing.  To hit town and find a favourite artist is playing that night, to stoop down and pick up a £50 note blowing along an empty street, to… well you get the idea.  Randomness can also be awful, but since this is midweek and we’re equidistant from a weekend then we need cheering up so let’s forget about downers.

Some random things are only partly random. Take Songkick suggestions. You make a list of people you’d like to see, it might run to several hundred but it’s a list you’ve made, and from these once a week or so Songkick emails a short list of gigs you might be interested in, highlighting two in the message header.  “Just announced” it declares “someone and someone else“.  So it looks like a doubleheader gig.  Well, it does.  And sometimes one might really wish that it were.  Who would not react positively to”Just announced: Judy Collins and Wizz Jones“?  Can you imagine it?  The epitome of the precise coupled with the lord of engaging and creative chaos?  What a night that would be.  Judy, Wizz, make it happen.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
