Ross seems to have missed tonight's (Friday, 10/22) show at Ringside with
Cold Sides and Pulsoptional.  You will have your rock.  You will have your
Henry Cowell (this is the first of Pulsoptional's Henry Cowell tour).  You
will have a soundtrack to some silent films pieced together by Carrie Shull
from Skip Elsheimer's library.  The official start time is 9.  Cold Sides is
on first for those wary of longhair music.
