They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Jonathan Richman‘s set at NYC’s Bowery Ballroom last night was so wonderful it left me virtually speechless. And Athens, Ga., legend Vic Chesnutt‘s opening set was revelatory, as well.
Newsflash: Vic told the crowd last night that Jonathan had recently flown him to San Francisco, where Vic recorded his new album, with Jonathan and his drummer, Tommy Larkins, backing him up. “It went pretty well,” the paraplegic singer-songwriter said with a grin.
I’ll be back for tonight’s show, expecting something equally entertaining. You should be there too.
