Exene Cervenka acoustic set

at Easy Street Records 04-16-2010

A good crowd, not like a mosh pit packed, but good turned up for a cool acoustic set from Punk legend Exene Cervenka of X fame.

A free concert in a record store is a very cool thing. A 6pm start time on a Friday night is brutal when commuting in but it turned out to be not too bad and I even found decent parking. Let's face it, the drive in was an all or nothing deal, because if I had got stuck or could not find parking the whole thing was a waste of time and gas. It was like the Gods of Punk Rock wanted me to go to this.

It had been many many years since I had a can of Rainier ... and so when a guy offered me one, it felt right, even if it will be the last one again for a while ...
