LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

T his week's issue is packed with profiles including Loudon Wainwright III, Joe Ely, Deborah Coleman, Fuck (yep, you read it right), Charles McPherson, Harvey Danger, the Kinleys, and the late George Gershwin.

If that isn't enough, we also give new releases by Tori Amos and Charlie Robison a spin. Both songwriters have struggled with adversity. Tori deals with the emotional baggage of rape and relationships going sour, while Charlie is getting back up on his feet after being dumped by his record label before he could get out his first album.

Newcity Chicago's Dave Chamberlain takes a look at new Chicago-area and independent label music coming out in time for the holidays in "Like Christmas." Meanwhile on the stage, Austin Chronicle takes a look at artists laying it all out for their fans in "Live Shots."
