Listen: Doug Burr's New "Topeka" Demo

Seems demos really are all the rage around town this week.

The above clip, aside from featuring photos from the great Allison V. Smith, features a brand new demo track from area folk hero Doug Burr, written exclusively for the upcoming independent film, Topeka--which, wouldn't you know, is written and directed by Red Monroe frontman Eric Steele.

The song is classic Burr if ever such a term could be applied. It's tender, heart-wrenching, and written from the perspective of a number of Steele's characters--which, really, is just the icing on the cake.
