Bathed in flashing pink and green light was a pint-sized, shop-window ready Miss Pussycat—literally. Her head was on a mini mannequin popping out from behind a curtain. She appeared to cheers and loud, ringing claps from the audience. Someone waved a metallic baton. The warmup act, The Simple Pleasure, hopped up and down wildly in their gym shorts and tank tops, spraying sweat as they pumped their fists in anticipation. The DJ If Jesus Had Machine Guns perfected his single dance move of the night.

Who says publishing isn’t a sweet industry any more?
It is when you’re bringing out a cookbook and you get to eat red velvet cake, chocolate balls, mud pie, popcorn, and cookies galore, based on your own family recipes.

“It’s the applause that feeds the soul of a musician,” Rick Reyes said, with grace and humor, after a round of it came his way. The crowd at the Owl Shop was getting bigger, and Pasofino Social Club was just getting warmed up.

Jason Sobocinski always has a good story up his sleeve. Sometimes, he’ll wax poetic on the unexpected tameness of Fourme d’Ambert, a French blue so mild it’s almost green.

He’s conquered the space-time continuum! He’s aged not a bit! He’s as cute and disheveled as ever. He’s back and waiting for the world to recognize his genius, giving us the skinny on how energy equals mass times the speed of light. Squared.

It’s homecoming week for New Haven-raised musicians. It’s also a time to honor such old and worthy traditions as 18th-century tribute concerts, live stagings of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, and visits from one of the most foremost electronica/puppetry duos in the nation.
