cave

Slideshow of last night’s Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds show tomorrow at BLCKDGRD, where after a week of relative aarghlessness (limited to links) and posts on poetry, the death of an obscure musician, DC United, culminating today in a post for my daughter’s 20th birthday, I think I’ve driven off all but the most loyal of readers, mostly people I know as flesh and blood and the few digital readers who are fellow citizens of my Stringtown.

As for the show, Cave worked, gave us our $$$worth, band was tight, excellent show. Cave seemed frustrated the crowd didn’t work as hard as he did, the cost, no doubt, of an aging rocker’s aging audience. What a bunch of old fucks we were. Still, watching the Strathmore docents’s faces as Cave sang Stagger Lee’s lyric I’ll crawl over five good pussies to get to one fat boy’s asshole was almost worth the price of admission itself.
