If you haven't been watching Painting With John on HBO Max, I highly recommend it. Way more than a painting show, it's equally hypnotic, funny, and transcendent. I had not really delved into John Lurie in the past, and I found that I like his music just as much if not more than his show. Whether it's his acid jazz combo The Lounge Lizards, or his vocal explorations under his alter ego Marvin Pontiac, I'm all about it right now. What you got tonight?

Can you help us out?
