Molly Ringwald is touring after the release of her debut jazz album, "Except Sometimes." She will perform tomorrow night at the Newmark Theatre in Portland.
And I have to work.
You probably know this song:
She was 3 when she started signing with her piano-playing father, and she kept singing while pursuing an acting career. Now she's got a jazz album out, and she's touring — and she'll be singing just down the road while I'm working Friday night.
Oh, well. Next time.
The Molly Ringwalds, meanwhile, are playing the same night in Alabama.
I won't be able to make that one, either. Maybe next time I'm in Louisiana they'll have a show nearby.
