Hey hi howdy Firepups! FiniFinito here on behalf of the NYC-traffic-jam-delayed Donita Sparks who is currently stuck in crosstown traffic (hence the Hendrix video above) as she prepares to begin her 2008 US Tour in Hoboken, NJ tonight at Maxwell’s, which I am told is one of the finer rock n roll establishments in an area full of them in the tri state area.

Donita will be by later to check in, so leave a message for her in comments, or of course feel free to hang out and chill for a while with us as we jam out to some tunes for a traffic jam that I picked out for us today! Enjoy!
