One Last Chance

Just a reminder: to win that free ticket to my performance at New York city's famed Birdland this coming Monday night, September 15th, you will have to post your answers to our musical questionnaire by 5 PM Eastern time Saturday evening (the deadline having been arbitrarily extended to reflect the benevolence of the Redheads). That's tomorrow, my dears! So put on your thinking caps, and surprise us!
