Someone once told sad-singer/sad-songwriter Greg Laswell that he should smile more often, so he tried it. Tore out all his stitches. Greg Laswell made you a friendship photo collage for your birthday. But he knew you’d just think it was stupid, so he tore it up. Greg Laswell adopted a puppy from his local shelter. But it turns out he’s super-allergic, so he had to give it back. If you see Greg Laswell lookin’ kinda down after his set at Cafe 939 this evening, please resist the natural urge to hug him and tell him that everything’s gonna be okay.
