Rush is Right! 

No, not that evil blimp Rush Limbaugh. We're talking about Bobby Rush, the bawdy 70-something bluesman who taught us all the pleasures and pitfalls of making love to a plus-sized lady. He plays the Tri-State Blues Festival on Saturday, August 19th. Oh sure, Bobby “Blue” Bland, Shirley Brown, J. Blackfoot, and several others will be on hand at the DeSoto Civic Center to lay down the soul, but Bobby’s the man, and you can read our recent interview with him here.
