California's Burning

Heat index maps and drought conditions throughout the western US indicate dangerous days of high temperatures and fires are ahead for regional cities and states. Already in 2015, Los Angeles experienced an intense heatwave topping 108-114F in a region that nearly 15 million people call home. Currently, wildfires rage out of control over mountainous regions in the northern part of the Golden State. These threats in California are examples of what Danger Days are all about. Thinking about extreme weather, fires, and other such climate calamities, the long-time LA resident and Americana musician, Dave Alvin, presents his own warning in a rocking interpretation of the song, California's Burning: "You may be rich or poor, but you know that fire won't care".
