David Roberts+ Your Authors @drvox Seattleite transplanted from Tennessee; now blogging for vox.com/ about energy politics. Climate hawk, deficit dove. Not a doctor. May. 09, 2019 1 min read + Your Authors

1. Fun anecdote. Last night I got back to my hotel room around 10pm, exhausted from a day of traveling, conferencing, & speaking that started at 5am. But lo! I found out via tweet that one of my all-time favorite musical artists, @Corybranan, was playing just a mile away!

2. So I grab a cab over & walk in just as he launches into the opening notes of what is arguably my favorite song of all-time. I almost friggin' cried y'all.  https://soundcloud.com/corybranan/01-the-corner 

3. And then, after the show, we got to chill out a bit in the green room and talk music, politics, kids, and whatnot. I tried not to fanboy too hard, with limited success. Been listening to this guy's songs since 2003.

4. Anyway, as much as the world seems to be going to shit these days, I guess there's a little magic & serendipity left in it yet. Do yourself a favor and catch Cory on tour, he'll be up & down the east coast over the next few months. </fin>  https://www.corybranan.com/#tour
