To cleanse your news-weary palates today, please enjoy this great new song by singer-songwriter Jay Brannan, whom some you may recognize from the film Shortbus, in which he got naked and also sang his song "Soda Shop." This song, "Square One," is all about the vapidity of West Hollywood and L.A., and the frustration of empty romances. His latest album Always, Then, & Now went on sale last week, and you can get it on iTunes here. Jay will be at Bottom of the Hill next Thursday, July 31, and tickets are $14.
