No Bjorn, No John, Just Peter

I spent a good 14 hours wandering SXSW yesterday, dropping into various venues and tents when something caught my ear. Early in the day, I was enticed by one singer-songwriter with a particularly lovely voice. It turned out to be a familiar one. It belonged to Peter Moren, the Peter part of Peter, Bjorn and John.

He was plugging his upcoming solo album, performing somber songs with just an acoustic guitar and the Bob Dylan harmonica set up. The audience wasnt really buying itnot that there was much of an audience. For much of his set, he played to barely a dozen people, and most of the ones that werent talking to each other were snapping pictures or writing in their notepads, arms folded when they werent. Tough crowd, especially for a guy who wrote one of last years biggest singles.


Would white supremacists, neo-Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan pose the same threat they do now if a mainstream Republican were president instead of Donald Trump?
