The Sister of the Radical (hereafter known as SORor, or by her real name, which is Dorothy) is on tour with her band, which is called The Gilmartin Potter Band. She and her bandmate, Aaron Gilmartin, have just come home from several years in Europe, where they have been composing and performing like mad. Aaron is in front; Dorothy is in the middle; and I am supposed to know who the guy in the back is, but I don't. I think he was part of the band that recorded their songs in Germany.
They are really, really good. And if you click on the link above, you can also buy their album which is also really, really good.
Im trying to post their schedule on the bar to the left, but so far Blogger is denying me. SO -- go to their website for a complete list of tour dates near you. And if you live in or near any of those places, beginning with Liberty Village in Union Bridge, MD this Tuesday, July 3, you should go see them and take your friends. It will be a fun evening, and except for a small appearance fee they pretty much only get paid on the door, so having a large crowd is not only more fun for them but it has some bearing on their day-to-day well-being.

Unless I note otherwise, situations, pseudonymous people and professional dilemmas described here are fictional. Uncivil or mean-spirited comments toward me or anyone else will be deleted, as will advertisements for products or services disguising themselves as comments. The Radical can also be found at her Zenith faculty page and at Cliopatria; scholarly and public writing can also be found here. The banner photo was taken from this page.
