A call for a Jonathan Richman review was made:
We got there at 9 pm and it had already started! He often tours without a backing band which is brilliant if you think about it. He doesn't have to share any money and everyone will just be there for him regardless of who opens. He didn't sing any songs I was familiar with from recordings (I have heard him play some of them live before) and they came in three languages (Spanish, Italian, French) with him translating as he went along, as usual. There was a good-sized crowd and he seemed stoked. He sang a really funny song about how your body does not want to be overloaded with wine or surrounded by electromagnetic radiation and buzzing devices. Awesome, as always.
She has an etsy store. I'm getting a cat ornament. I might have to save up for one of those pillows. Those are really good. I'm curious to see Sonny Smith without the Sunsets.
