I just got back from the the Evening Muse (a great little club we should all frequent more often). What musician did I see tonight? I'm glad you asked. I saw Dave Alvin play an acoustic show. Well, not entirely acoustic. His sideman was playing a Fender Stratocaster for most of the night. Now and then he would sit down and play a lap steel. I don't want to stoop to hyperbole but it was like seeing Neil Young, Bob Dylan or Paul Kelly in a small room. It couldn't have been better. Here's a picture of Dave. See, he's smiling and having a good time and so was I. Where in the hell were you?
