Psychedelic Furs

Chloë, Beverly and I got the see the Psychedelic Furs at the Baltimore Soundstange. We thoroughly enjoyed this romp (at least for B & me) through the eighties.

Seeing them live, I was struck by how well the sax worked with Richard Butler’s voice. It’s like there were two singers.

They played stuff from their newest album, and Ghost in You, Heaven, Heartbreak Beat, President Gas, Pretty in Pink and Love my way (plus a lot more). Lovely evening in Baltimore!

Father’s Day, Part 2. THE QUEERS

Chloë took me to see The Queers at the Baltimore Soundstage, which was extra nice since she had to work on Father’s Day. I missed the first band, but saw the Jasons, Dwarves and The Queers.

True story – in the 1990’s when I was touring with Bazooka Joe, we actually stayed at Joe King Queer’s house in New England. He was cool.

The Dwarves were incredibly loud. They played the “The Dwarves Are Young and Good Looking” album in its entirety. I saw singer Paul Cafaro after the set (he asked what restaurants were open) and he actually hugged me!

It was a super fun night! Thanks, Chloë!

Father’s Day 2022, Part 1

I’m posting a few pics of a special day with my girls, part one. Chloë had to work. She made me this fantastic ring! Lily took me out for Sushi, thrift stores and a nice NCR trail hike. And we played drums at Guitar Center. FUN DAY!
