I’m old, but at least I’m not the only one
So, I went to see Califone (and Roommate) with some friends at The Hideout. Show started at 10 pm (according to the schedule). We just barely got in (doors were at 9 and the place is small). Roommate came on at probably 10:15 or so (pretty close to on time for a rock and/or roll show) and played until about 11. Califone started playing at about 11:30. I made it through about 2 songs before I had to strain to keep my eyes open. That’s not a review of the band, and this post is not to provide any sort of review. This post is about staying up late.
I mean, I felt better that my wife and one of my friends were having trouble staying awake. So, like I said, I’m not the only one. But it wasn’t like this was some guy playing an acoustic guitar and singing softly. There were loud guitars and pounding drums. Oh, and a keytar!
