everything was too crisp and shiny without the moodily-lit haze
Off to see Billy Bragg tonight, at Vicar St. I’ve been a fan since ‘Life’s a Riot with Spy vs Spy’ around 1986 or so, and I’m really looking forward to it.
Last time I saw him was in San Francisco, and it was the first time I’d been to a music venue in a no-smoking city. It was weird – everything was too crisp and shiny without the moodily-lit haze. And Billy was drinking herbal tea.
If he’d come to Dublin a week later, he’d be in another smoke-free environment.
