Dave Bazan, originally uploaded by patchenphotography
I won free admission from the Current to last week's David Bazan show at the Turf Club. Micah was my plus one. First thing we did was make our way up to the bar for refreshments. I had a pint of Goose Island 312 Urban Wheat beer. I didn't know what it was, but I ordered because the tap handle was a rotary phone handset.
Nothing drives home the fact that I am an old man like staying out past midnight at a rock-n-roll concert. I was asleep on my feet halfway through, and I got my second wind around 11:45. It was a great show. Their tour diary said, "In terms of audience quality tonight was one of, if not the best, and the Turf Club is an amazing place to play."
