The Ditty Bops

ditty bopsHere's an unusual post: It's about one of my favorite bands -- the Ditty Bops. I've seen Amanda Barrett and Abby DeWald perform their occasionally wacky combination-vaudeville-ragtime-washboard-jazz-folk-rock several times, once while they were bicycling across the country to promote clean air. And their environmental nonprofit, You And I Save The World, helped pass San Francisco's plastic-bag ban. Impressive. Now I learn two more reasons why the Ditty Bops are the best band around: First, they have a new album out, and second, they are way involved with Farm Aid -- that supercool concert organized by Willie, John, Neil, and Dave. To fully appreciate the Ditty Bops, click here.

This short survey will help us tell the story of the state of retail in 2020 so that retailers can benchmark their performance and have data to work with as they look ahead to 2021.
