Characters, With Punctuation
The posts in this section are mostly based on interviews I did beginning in the ’90s, of people whose work in the community I loved but who were not yet given a lot of mainstream press. I didn’t see it as my job to be a “critic” or act as an expert, but to celebrate their talents– and help share them. This first one was based on 1994 interviews with George Matson, who founded the Stud bar in 1964, with its DJ “LaRue” in 1994, and then with Snow White and Mica Sigourney when the bar was closed, a casualty of Covid-19, in 2020.
