Remembering Nowhere Man and a Whiskey Girl

In this week's deadtree issue of the Tucson Weekly, we did an an interview with Nowhere Man and a Whiskey Girl friends Bryan Sanders, Jimi Giannatti and Keli Carpenter. The interview was from a Day Drinking video we did with this NMWG crew about the ongoing online auction and the benefit concerts happening this weekend to honor Amy and Derrick Ross' work and raise funds for the Lupus Foundation.

In the Day Drinking video, Sanders and Giannatti (and thankfully a little later, Carpenter) share some NMWG memories and I left wishing I hung out with these guys more often.

Don't forget, the 2nd Annual Benefit for Amy and Derrick Ross: A Celebration of the Lives, Love and Music of Nowhere Man and a Whiskey Girl, is Saturday, Dec. 6 at Café Passe, 415 N. 4th Ave., 6 to 9 p.m. and The Flycatcher, 340 E. 6th St., 8:30 p.m. to 1 a.m.

Online auction continues through midnight, Saturday, Dec. 13 at

In the video, Giannatti mentions a KXCI Locals Only interview Amy and Derrick did a bit ago, and how it captured the couple's love, relationship and of course, their music. So we reached into KXCI's archives and found it for you to have a listen, too, right here.
