Continuing my weekend of fun and another night at Antone's, I went to see Nick Lowe. My friend Robbin originally bought the ticket, but then ended up traveling to San Francisco this weekend. I was taking care of her doggie, Barney, so she kindly gave me her ticket. Nick Lowe is responsible for some of the most amazing pop songs in history. "Cruel To Be Kind," "Peace, Love, and Understanding," and even "I Knew the Bride When She Used to Rock and Roll." With a new album last year, At My Age, Lowe is enjoying a resurgence in popularity, so much that his label decided to re-release many songs from his early catalog. Proving that excellent pop songs don't age, Lowe delivered a tight and funny solo acoustic set, exhibiting great comfort with the audience.
Audience provides backing vocals on "When I Write the Book"
Next up for this weekend, I'll enjoy some local talent, Neal Mehta and Brent Adair at Clementine.
