|Choosing between two live bands, a movie and a cozy evening at home (with my old trusted friend, the cold), I picked Bombee+. Actually, I had an invitation from Tom, a guy I had met three weeks ago at the exact same place, who was organizing the thing. But I mixed up dates, so bumping into him there caught me by surprise. |
Anyway -- somehow the weather (more on that later) or lack of publicity had thinned the crowds considerably. That was rather cruel to the band, them being on the last leg of their tour. In the end, the audience just outnumbered band members and organizers. Accordingly, the concert was quite cozy and very nice all in all. One guy with a guitar, one with a cajón and a singer; lovely chord progressions and great understated vocals. Go see them! (they will be touring again in autumn this year.)
On the way back, I got into a blizzard and missed the opportunity to have my photograph taken as The Abominable Snowman by four giggling girls obviously delighted by the snow even more than myself. Pity.
