Vote for Jim
Populist party candidate Jim Wurster is a shoo-in for U.S. president in the 2008 elec.... Sorry, we are referencing Wursters hilarious hoax Web bio (www.jimwurster.com). Actually Wurster ranks as one of the most engaging and evocative of South Floridas stalwart stars, having made a huge mark as frontman of Nineties rock powerhouse Black Janet and countrified masters of conception the Atomic Cowboys. A schoolteacher as well as a musician of intricacy and vast intelligence, Wurster can be as thoughtfully serious and provocative as his Website is funny.
This past month Wurster released a CD of new stuff, Hallelujah (available at www.cdbaby.com). One element that raised the Cowboys to an especially lofty level was pedal-steel master Bob Wlos, who joins the songwriter extraordinaire for an acoustic performance at 8:00 p.m. in the cozy Luna Star Café. Campaign contribution is five dollars.
