Ted and WSC
Ted Leo was good, but I'll admit I preferred the show we saw last winter. Maybe because that was the first time, it seemed a little more exciting. Six Months In A Leaky boat was a surprise though. I need to dig out that Split Enz cd. A good rockin' time was had by all. The show was close to a sellout, but I don't think it quite got there.
The highlight of the evening (for us anyway) was Washington Social Club. These guys (and gal) rock our world. Lots of new material. Typical fun, rockin' songs. It'll be nice to see how they develop. It was a little odd watching the crowd just stand around while they were playing. I know DC audiences are infamous for "doing the standing still", but WSC usually gets people moving. I can't recommend this band enough.
Next up: Bob Mould at the Birchmere an Saturday.
