if you strike me down in anger, here i stand
It seems like ages since I've posted about any shows I've seen. Well, it has been ages, actually.
Between then and now, I managed to catch Leonard Cohen (who was brilliant--check out Elaine Corden's review), Boogie Monster (whose wicked set included some noisily re-imagined covers of Kanye and Japandroids), and Piper Davis (who was in her usual fine form at Glory Days).
Between then and now, that thing up there also came out (although, they didn't have it at RedCat yet when I went the other day, so I don't have the real thing). Some people whose opinions hold a lot more weight than mine really like it.
The guys were out on tour when Brian had to be rushed to the hospital, which you may have read about. Hope you'll join me in wishing him a quick recovery.
