“Drove downtown in the rain — nine-thirty on a Tuesday night, just to check out the late-night record shop. Call it impulsive. Call it compulsive. Call it insane. But when I’m surrounded I just can’t stop.”
I love the Barenaked Ladies’ song Brian Wilson. It’s a song about suffering from a mental block of giant proportions — about feeling like Wilson must have felt after a breakdown and a couple of years of seclusion. The cool thing about it is that Brian Wilson started touring again a few years ago and even opened with that song a couple of times.
My mom’s anniversary was last week, so I got her tickets to see Brian Wilson this Wednesday at the Beacon Theater.
Niki and I just saw Cheap Trick there on Thursday with Sarah from Blogging Stocks. Soul Asylum and Fastball opened for them. We missed all but Fastball’s last song, but I’ve seen them before and I’m a huge fan so I will definitely see them again in the future.
