LAST NIGHT IN BOSTON - It was years ago I last saw Echo & The Bunnymen live - it was at the Club Baby Head in Providence. (It was a tiny place and I suspect now, as I did then, that the band was only playing there since Ian McCullogh had recently left the band to stake out on his own.) Probably the most memorable thing about the show is that people were Echo & The Bunnymen. Its funny to remember that before every club had "No Moshing" signs posted that the music didn't have to be fast or heavy to be mosh-able.

LIVING LEGENDS - The show at Great Scott last night was a real treat. We might have liked a little more volume on the guitar and drums, but Ian McCullough's voice hasn't lost anything over the years. Its interesting to see these guys now after bands like The Editors and The National have made so much noise in the last few years. The inspiration in the music is hard to miss, although the performance style is radically different.
