Hey, Baby! It's the 4th of July ...

I hope you're having a wonderful long Fourth of July weekend. Michael and I went to see the Mets get clobbered by the Yankees last night in da Bronx, but still had a great time despite the thrashing David Wright and the Boys got.
All holidays deserve a great song and while the 4th isn't really known for its music, I leave you with the greatest July 4th song ever recorded, fittingly called "4th of July" by the seminal Los Angeles punk band X.
Listen to it here (you'll love it).

I watched the third inning at Manuals last night, and it was quite a sight--not something you see every day.

Dave Alvin, formerly of the Blasters, wrote that song. It's on a couple of his solo efforts. Great song.

Dan M --
Yes, Dave complements them really well (hence the success of the Knitters).

Would you believe I saw the Blasters open for the Go-Go's back in '82?!
