Commentary sheer awesomeness

Neko Case At the Three Rivers Arts Festival, Pittsburgh

Playing around with a new camera…we caught the sound check (lightning bolt guitar strap) in the afternoon before the actual show at 7:30. It threatened rain all evening, dark clouds swirling around, but we only got a few sprinkles just before Neko, Kelly, and the boys took the stage.  Perfect evening despite the douchebag behind us flirting pathetically with his date, shouting in my ear so she could hear you over the music–dude, talking for 90 minutes about your convention in Atlanta–at the Peach Tree Center, you think, or is it Peach Tree Plaza–it’s something Peach Tree–so try being a little respectful and shut the hell up. (I’m the big bearded guy who turned around and gave you the death glare during “Hold On, Hold On.”  Come on, man–Neko and Kelly Hogan have the best stage repartee I’ve ever experienced–I know it was a free show, but just shut up and listen.

Native, Militant Westsylvanian (the first last best place), laborer, gardener, and literary hobbyist (if by literary you mean "hack"). I've had a bunch of different blogs, probably four, due to a recurring compulsion to start over. This incarnation owes to a desire to dredge up the best entries of the worst little book of hand-scrawled poems I could ever dream of writing, salvageable excerpts from fiction both in progress and long-abandoned. and a smattering of whatever the hell seems to fit at any particular moment. At first blush, I was here just to focus on old, terrible verse, but I reserve the right to include...anything. Maybe everything, certainly my love of pulp novels, growing garlic, the Pittsburgh Steelers and howling at the moon--both figuratively and, on rare occasions, literally.
