Last night a friend called and said he had an extra ticket to the Iron & Wine/Calexico show at the Avalon. Usually, I don’t enjoy shows much anymore, but I decided to check it out since it was 2 bands I love and I am glad I went. Since I am bad with song titles and all that (I have a friend who if you give him the track number and the year of the record, could name the song and who was playing what and all these details. Very savant) I can’t tell you what they played exactly. I found myself surprised that I enjoyed Calexico a little more than Iron & Wine. Maybe because I spent most of Iron & Wine staring at this woman’s ponytail. It was good times.
