Rave on cats, he cried

Carl Perkins, 1932-1998

Our own Light Crust Doughboys--performing with James Blackwood--have gotten a Grammy nomination for Best Southern Gospel, Country Gospel, or Bluegrass Gospel Album with their Keep Lookin' Up: The Texas Swing Sessions...On related gospel matters, Fort Worth's Kirk Franklin picked up several Grammy nominations: Producer of the Year, Non-Classical; Best Gospel Album by a Choir or Chorus (with his Nu Nation); and Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal (with God's Property and "Salt"). Homegirl Erykah Badu copped nominations for Best R&B Song for her hit "On and On" (co-written with Jaborne Jamal), Best Female R&B Performance, Best New Artist, and Best R&B Album...

Course of Empire, having just released their long-awaited sophomore effort Telepathic Last Words, will follow things up with a two-night celebration of that fact at the Curtain Club on Friday, January 23, and Thursday, January 24...
