Southpaw Jones has the "white boy blues." He's got all the classic symptoms. He's wasted an entire Saturday, he's spent six hours playing Nintendo, he's carelessly left a pound of food on his plate and he's feared for his life only because his bungee cord felt strange. Jones, a 23-year-old singer/songwriter, will perform a rendition of his song "White Boys Blues" and a set of his quirky folk tales tonight at Hallenbeck's in North Hollywood.

Re " 'Southpaw Jones' Quirky Tunes Offer an Unflinching Critique of 'White' Culture," Valley Life, Feb. 23. A 23-year-old singer named Southpaw Jones performed out in North Hollywood. He's a native Texan who writes and sings about "white boy's blues." The classic symptoms: He's wasted half a Saturday playing Nintendo, he's carelessly left a pound of food on his plate and he fears for his life because his bungee cord feels strange. Then I read the obits, and here is another blues musician who, at intermission, stepped out behind the theater where he was performing to have a smoke and was stabbed to death.

On March 4, Charles W. Diggs Jr. wrote, "Now, what I want to say to Southpaw Jones is, 'Man, you ain't seen no blues, yet,' white or otherwise," (Letters to the Valley Edition). This was his response to Katherine Tolford's article about my music (Valley Life, Feb. 23). Frankly, he's right. As a young white male, the only "blues" I confront are shallow dilemmas like Napster lawsuits, neck hair and people who don't read articles fully before they jump to conclusions and respond. So what right do I have to wail?

The Olympic, maybe. The Forum, perhaps. But at a Woodland Hills hotel? At least two respected boxing experts can't explain how or why the card set for the Warner Center Marriott on Wednesday is stacked with such high-quality fighters. In what is believed to be a first, the San Fernando Valley will be the stage for two 12-round championship bouts on the same show.
