Last week I finally saw a band that I became familiar with about a year ago. I saw a listing for a show of theirs and thought they sounded like a fun band to see; unfortunately I had a conflict that night.

I saw an unexpectedly excellent blues show at Johnny D’s on Friday night! If I’d been familiar with all the acts, I would not have been as surprised.
