Last night, I did something completely spontaneous. It’s very unlike me given how much I love to plan but basically a friend of a friend suggested going to the Vanguard at Newtown for a live band that was doing a Paul Rodgers tribute. I had no clue who Paul Rodgers was. Or the bands that he was part of i.e. Free and Bad Company. But given that it was rock and roll (and not Hip-Hop or RnB), I was up for something impromptu.And it was worth the $30 ticket. It’s a small venue and initially I wasn’t too pleased. We couldn’t really see the stage from where we were seated due to people sitting in front of us and I wasn’t very optimistic. But then, for some reason, the people moved and went downstairs which turned out to be a huge bonus. Added to that, we were able to have some beers to go with the music. I just wish it had been tap beer than bottled beer. The band started around 9:30ish and went on for a couple of hours or so. And boy, did they rock! I had no idea about the songs but I enjoyed them thoroughly. The music was amazing. The cover singer was great. All in all, it was fantastic. So much so, I’m looking forward to checking out the original band’s music.

Rock-n-roll will never die. I hope.
Until next time,
