Yeah! Tonight was great. Last minute, Candace mentioned that the Spoons were playing at the Velvet Underground. What self-respecting person who grew up in the 80s (in Ontario, anyway) could say no? We had quite a nice group together. First, though, I went for pad thai at Java with Jim, Rainbow and Emily - and got to meet Justin, Emily's friend who also blogs on here. Which was nice, cause it's always nice to meet another person who understands that daily panic of having to find something, take a picture, upload it, and then feel guilty if you're off by one minute or miss a day.
The concert was great - highlights being when they played "Romantic Traffic" and the whole crowd was singing along. One of those hair-raising, sentimental-tears-a-pricklin' type of vibes. It was really awesome.
I got to meet Sandy Horne after the show, the Spoons' bassist. She was so damn awesome. The woman can play. Gone are the flowing gowns and funky nail polish of the 80s, but she was seriously impressive.
They played "Nova Heart" to close the set. It was so good. I love that song so much. It was a great night. I'm totally tired now though.
