Why? at the Loft


I saw Why? at the Loft last night. Alopecia was one of my favorite albums from 2008 – one of those that seems okay at first, you know, a couple of catchy songs but nothing special. Then you listen to it a few more times and there’s more and more there, with lyrics that won’t leave your head. It was kind of a strange concert in that it started about 11:30 PM and had no opening band. Who’s ever heard of a rock concert with no opening band? The concert had more than the normal share of drunken assholes, which kind of killed some of the mood for me. Other than that it was a pretty decent concert.

Anyway, Ezra Furman and the Harpoons are playing tonight, but I’m too worn out by the week to go see them. The one song I have by them is catchy and amusing. Listen away…
