PLAYLIST FOR “NICKNAMES” (1.28.12)

29 Jan

“A rose by any other name” would still be a tiresome cliche, but all of tonight’s featured performers — singers and musicians — are frequently called by other names. So am I, of course, but these guys are called their various nicknames to their faces. Big difference if you like to keep track of things like that.
