A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of seeing Neil Halstead at Johnny Brenda’s. He is currently on tour with Jack Johnson and Rogue Wave and played at one of those big venues in Camden. I’m not a fan of large concerts so I wasn’t about to go to see a big show where the person I wanted to see wasn’t even headlining. However! I knew that he was going to be playing a select number of smaller shows throughout the country. Somehow, my wishes of a small show came true!
Neil is the singer of Mojave 3 and member of the extinct band, Slowdive. I’ve been listening to everything he’s been involved in for about 12 years, but it always seemed that I was in the wrong place at the wrong time. I’ve never gotten to see him. Being that he’s one of my favorite musicians…up there with Morrissey and the Smiths…seeing him was definitely one of the highlights of my year. I also got to hug him and talk to him for a brief while…and probably making a fool of myself in the meantime. I took some photos, but I was more into taking it all in than getting a good photo. eh. Whatever.
