The last two times that I went to Karma on Wednesdays I was unlucky - they have a lottery to see who plays next, and my name wasn't drawn before 12:00 and I became to tired and smoked-out to stay. Karma sure is a popular place, and I have to say that it has the worst sound of the places I go. I went this Wednesday and there were a few good acts up... really good acts. And I sat with Youssou Seck for a beer or two; I've seen him play at some other open mics and also with Aaron Young. I believe that Youssou, along with the group members of Takadja, won a Juno award in the last year or two for best global album. Very cool! I invited him to come to Eddie Bo Dean's on any future Sunday night.
