Interpol tomorrow

Managed to go all 3 nights, thanks to a kind friend who hooked me up. All three were great and special for different reasons. Night 1 might be my favorite, but night 2 had a bunch of great songs not played either night, and night 3 was a really solid performance. Beautiful lighting, great sound, and positive vibes all around.

As an aside, I had a lot of emotional moments thanks to conversations I had with folks over the last few evenings, and also because of Interpol's stellar performances. I'm going to take a moment to highlight the hard work, dedication, and commitment that the crew put into making each show something special. A huge part of that is what the 9:30 does to ensure that happens. Consummate professionalism. They treat the band and crew with respect and enable them to do their work to make each night special. It is so easy to take for granted, but that's why after decades some of these folks are still doing what they're doing. They put their hearts and souls into their jobs, and it isn't easy work. Also, I couldn't help but get a little misty thinking of some of the people I've known at the 9:30 over the years who aren't with us anymore. I've got many, many memories attached to the space and the last few nights were reminders of how much fun I've had, how many memorable things I've seen, but how grateful I am for the friends I've made and people I've met. So many good ones are still with us, and I'm thankful for that. Really loved these shows and glad I got to see them. It's a good time of year to reflect on what makes concerts special, and the value they have given to my life. For me it's far more than just for the fun of seeing a show.

Laura popped-up unexpectedly in my Facebook feed the other day. That choked me up a bit. :(

Report back! We never got a report on Basinski….missing it broke my heart
If you meant William, I really am glad I saw it. First concert that I went to for concert purposes this year, I think. Wonderful music albeit obviously not that much to see action-wise. I had a blast.

can we expand on this? What other purposes do we attend concerts for?

When the legal issues are clearer and I can discuss Phish @ SPAC, you will understand.
