Elliott Smith dies in apparant suicide.
Plus, comedy show tonight at the Bear's Lair at 8pm.

Not that it's easy to get excited about a comedy show when one of the best songwriters of the last decade dies. I'm terribly sad about this. I just happen to have had one of his albums, Roman Candle, in my CD player for the last week. Come to think of it, probably not a week has gone by since I was 17 that I haven't listened to Elliott Smith. His music has had the amazing ability to console me in my down moments, despite his own meloncholia. This is very sad to me. I hope that if you haven't heard his work extinsively that you now give it a try. This is so incredibly disappointing.
