I almost forgot to mention that Bobby Bare Jr.
is also playing that same week… in that very same venue. Convenient? If you live in LES, it is. I, however, live in Brooklyn and will be commuting. There are probably no advance tickets sales since there weren’t any last time (01-28-05). Boy he tours a lot.
I know I’ve seen him live twice this year already, and that I could technically (techniquely) see him at the Sasquatch Festival
, but A. I can’t get enough and B. I’ll be busy with the other artists at Sasquatch. If you haven’t seen him, go. If you haven’t heard of him, buy his albums
. Spin named it one of the top ten albums
you probably missed in 2004 or something like that. His first album is a little better. Pitchfork didn’t even review either.
Fancy that. And if the albums are too Alt-Country (alla early Wilco), don’t worry… Live he cranks up the volume and rocks.
Oh, and it’ll be 05-05-05. What better way to celebrate than with Bare Jr.?
