I hit Sokol Underground for a little while last night to see some of the Bonnie "Prince" Billy show. I saw about 40 minutes of his set. He sounded great, and his band was very tight. I was not really in a mood to see such a mellow artist. I am quitting smoking pot for a while (it's a long story), so mentally I was focused on that. You know what I'm talking about if you are/were a long-term smoker. Plus, I had all sorts of ideas floating in my head about my next podcast, so I ended up bolting before Mr. Oldham was finished.
I was not impressed with opener Vverevvolf Grehv. Granted, I am not much of a death metal fan, so seeing one guy on stage rocking out in his own little metal world just did not do it for me. Honestly, I think he scared most of the crowd to death. All but a few people hung in the back of the club until he was finished. Todd Fink (singer of The Faint) showed up just in time to hear the final two notes of his bandmate's side project. That would have been enough for me.
