In honor of going to see Curtis Eller tonight at SteamCon. If you get a chance you should catch him playing live. Mr. Eller puts on a high energy show and sings some great songs inspired by American culture and history. I’ve learned that when he asks if you want a beautiful or an ugly song, always vote for the ugly one. They are not ugly at all and mostly hauntingly beautiful, though the topic isn’t always a happy one.
