By the time you read this, I will be sitting in my new chair behind my new desk located in the new Boise Weekly digs at 523 Broad St. Sweet. If you need to bring me something (CDs, reviews, chocolate chip cookies), that's where you'll find me Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. If I owe you money, I've left the country and won't be back for months. My phone number and e-mail should be the same: 344-2055 ext. 3006, firstname.lastname@example.org.
To those of you who responded to my ravings in the July 27 issue, thank you. Some of you had to call me with complaints and I appreciate those as much as I do the compliments. I am going to mess things up occasionally and if no one lets me know mistakes are happening, I'll just keep making them. For those of you who got on the ball, thank you to you, too. I know we can make this work.

There are some big players coming to the Big Easy over the next couple of months that you might want to go see (If you do go to any of these shows, write a 250-300 word review and send it to me.
