How last night's show came to be is an interesting story, but you know what, I'm really tired. I stayed up too late/got up too early and ran too many errands in the sun.
Tonight, I will give you facts, and pictures.
Fact: About 20 or 30 people came to see Lineland, a band I'd been calling Eric's new band, and Animal Hospital play last night. Not a huge crowd, by any stretch, but considering that we'd needed to give it a low profile, I was pretty happy with the turn out.
Fact: They made at least one new fan. Halfway through Lineland's second song, Nadia came over to me and said "Oh my god! They're aMAZing!"
Fact: Eric's New Band is actually called either Wrist Pain or Wolfy Wolf Wolf, depending on whether you believe Myspace or Eric.
Fact: They played, backlit, from behind a sheet.
Fact: Strangely I find it frustrating when I can't see the band twiddling their knobs. Har har.
Fact: When I walked into the venue to meet Kevin and Malcolm (Animal Hospital and Lineland respectively), the first person I saw was the Great Dater. Who was there the only other night I've seen Kevin in person. I thought that was very odd. I hadn't seen the GD in ages - almost two years? - and it was lovely to catch up with him. Bless his heart for starting to raise the boyfriend bar that had been set so so low.
Fact: All three bands were great. Very different. Very similar. Very great.
Fact: I love when live music is that great.
Fact: Going out for giant soup after a show is incompatible with waking up to work at 6:30.
