Two things for my Lafayetters and post-Lafayetters

Greater Lafayette, it's Great!

Patricia Henley, novelist and creative writer professor at Purdue, writes about Lafayette in the February Smithsonian Magazine. (via @girlinblack)

Also, Chicago's own The Uptown Sound return to Lafayette this Friday. If you caught their Friends of Bob show at the Lafayette Brewing Company, you know how awesome they are. If you missed it, now's your chance to correct that mistake.

JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound, Green Room Rockers, Fredericks Martinez
Friday, January 29, 9pm
Riverside Sports & Music Center
402 Brown St
West Lafayette, Indiana 47906
Tickets: $8

And speaking of the Uptown Sound, if you haven't heard yet their masterful cover of Wilco's I Am Trying To Break Your Heart, well you should.
