Since last we checked in on efforts to resurrect the Kessler Theater in Oak Cliff, my old friend Jeff Liles -- a "consultant" on the project -- has been hard at work parading folks in and out of the old joint for some stripped-down performances, a lovely bonus. I've given Pete one to post over on DC9, featuring Chris Savage of the Buck Pets performing a Mercurotones bonus track; writes Jeff, "I bet he hasn't played that song in twenty years." I'm going instead with Lara Lenhoff's "The Very Thought of You," only because, well, I've always loved that song, so there.
