Monday music: “Mission Temple Fireworks Stand”

I first got to see Paul Thorn in 2001 when he opened for Mark Knopfler at the Beacon Theatre. I missed a chance to see him at the City Winery, though Wrenn got to do so with our friend Laura Anne (another commitment sprung up unexpectedly that night), but I’ve loved his music for lo these 17 years. This is one of my three favorites of his, “Mission Temple Fireworks Stand.” This live version explains the song’s origin, which is a delight.
