I caught half a set by Special Ed and the Shortbus, an "R-rated bluegrass band" tonight at the Charleston. Part bluegrass, part jug band, part klezmer, part performance art, they played together like married people on a good day. The words that came to my mind were fresh and unafraid. And really, incredibly musically talented. Tight. If you have the chance to see them you should. I glanced at their upcoming tour dates and it looks like they're playing all the hot spots in Indiana next.
