Art Howard at Night's first guest ever, Don de Leaumont, returns to show his softer side with this live acoustic performance!

Don may be best known as publisher of the hard rock/metal blog, The Great Southern Brainfart, which has received bylines and mentions in music magazines from Revolver to Rolling Stone. For his 40th birthday, however, much like Jimmy Buffet did with "A Pirate Looks at 40," Don looks at 40 by demonstrating his singer-songwriter skills. Along with highlights from his birthday show at Decatur, Georgia's Java Monkey café, Art gets the inside scoop on how a devout metal fan weaned on Twisted Sister became an unplugged, fingerpicking wordsmith.

Songs performed are "You Built a Wall," "Somewhere in Between," "Why I Sing About the Rain," "Carry Me Home" and "Fart Proudly" (seriously). 41 minutes.

Art's comments: "Oh, my poor face! Don totally melted us all! But really, if you listen closely to Don's music, you'll hear impressively precise fingerpicking with the most well-thought-out rhymes this side of Jay-Z. Turn off the screamo for a change and take a listen to Don."
