Choked Up 2

The photo [of the construction on Library Mall, “It’s Time for a Change,” News & Notes, Fall 2014] choked me up a bit yesterday. I was a member of the band Deyenasoar Feathers from 1987 to 1990 and am now an art professor at the University of Tennessee-Martin.

I saw my first band in Madison, Swamp Thing, [on the mall], and the band I was in played there at least four times. The mall embodied the DIY potential that Madison will be remembered for and was the downtown nerve center from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. Hopefully, it still is!
