<<But the quick take is that I really liked Flaming Lips, Springsteen,
Superdrag and Neko. Not so much Kelly Willis or Allison Moorer. Jury's still
out on the last two though.>>
The jury is still out for me on the new Superdrag -- so far, I really like
the first three or four songs and the rootsy song toward the end, but I lose
interest in the rest. But I've only listened maybe three or four times.
Maybe I set the bar too high after seeing them do blisteringly good sets at
two different shows lately. What was most impressive was seeing them play
with just as much energy in front of 30 people in Toronto as they did
opening for Pete Yorn (Yawn) in front of nearly 1,000 at a sold out show
less than three weeks before that. Mic Harrison is a nice addition.
