If you've heard any of Joe Pernice's songs, you wouldn't think of them as the kind of thing that'd make him work up a sweat while playing. Wrong ! While Thom Monahan and Peyton Pinkerton got to sit down and play, Joe stood up, and while he had his glasses on he almost seemed a little Elvis Costello-like, raising his eyebrows as he played and generally looking like he was really making an effort. Towards the end of it, he was dripping sweat as he played. He talked a little, joked a little, and I had a great time.
The set list (which I don't normally bother writing down these days), was like so. As you can see, he played tracks from every album, which was a very nice surprise.
Support was by Lisa Miller, who did the nice country singer type of thing, with a nice strong voice and a strangely familiar backup band - Shane O'Mara (who went sick on a few tracks with some weird guitar pedals, to much applause afterwards), Bill McDonald, and Peter Jones (they've have all played together with Stephen Cummings) !

I may not (so far) run the kind of blog that posts social conscience linkage - other friends seem to have it covered better than I could manage (yes, I'm aware that's no excuse), but this doesn't mean that I don't care about the State of ThingsTM.
