finding a leon russell fan
A week from tonight, Leon Russell will be performing at the Cedar Cultural Center here in Minneapolis. I've seen Leon twice in the past and was excited to see that he's going to be back in town -- until I realized that I probably have nobody in my life right now who would be a Leon Russell fan. I mean, maybe I could drag Jerry along, but it wouldn't be his scene... and most current acquaintances of mine would just ask, "Who the heck is Leon Russell??" It doesn't seem like the kind of concert you'd attend by yourself, and Leon has a voice that probably isn't for the uninitiated, so Leon might be singing to a Howardless audience. And I'm realizing that I need to widen my circle of friends.
