Never seen the band before. Never been to the venue before. Never mind. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.

It was so bananas that we went to their second gig at the Vanguard, at around 1am, and listened to a bunch of new Dappled Cities songs and ate chips because it was all the food we could find, our paws permanently dipped in fresh foil pouches like mutant salt-and-vinegar munching marsupials. Later, waiting for cabs, we half-heartedly chatted up random members of the John Steel Singers. And haven't they come on in leaps and bounds!
Now my wrists are stamped all over like primary school library books... and it's that hour of the morning when you know it's going to be light all too soon... and your head is pounding with cigarettes and it's like a race to fall asleep before the sun comes up and it's all wrong but it's all right...
