Our weekly time travel found us drifting almost a quarter-century back to 1993. Bill Clinton was inagurated our 42nd President. Whoomp (There It Is!) was frying our brains. The first Three-Peet, as the Chicago Bulls are NBA champions again. Prince changed his name to an unpronounceable symbol. And a release of three albums from local artists that caught the attention of music lovers and moved the center of the alternative music world to our town. So, as usual, there was good and not-so-good.
