I’m worried about Simon Le Bon. Not the Duran Duran frontman, but my houseplant (a stunning calathea ornata beauty star I named after the singer) that has spider mites. I’ve mentioned it before, but I’ve gotten REALLY into houseplants during the pandemic. I also name them after rock stars so they have a built-in soundtrack. (Didn’t we all do that elementary school science fair experiment where you played music to plants to help them grow?)

Anyway, Simon has spider mites and they’ve also spread to some of my other calatheas, including Mick (Jagger, a peacock calathea) and Elton (John, a rattlesnake calathea), and I wish I could find some music to keep pests away in addition to the neem oil and misting I’m doing.

I’m planning for the plants to get some more musical diversity when I tune in to some “live” shows this weekend. Both the Ohana Festival and Bonnaroo are streaming some archived sets. I have a feeling that Mick will particularly enjoy the James Brown set.

We’ve got lots of news about streaming shows from a former “American Idol” contestant and a current leader of a popular metal band among other interesting stories to share. Read on.
