Hot damn, Camper Van Beethoven is kinda back together and coming to Boston next week! Holy shit! I am so there! I’ve always been a fan of Cracker, whom I believe to be one of the most underrated bands of the ’90s, but CVB had something different, an extra bite, an extra splash of creativity and panache that I love so much. I think David Lowery is a genius. Maybe a modern day Ray Davies, in fact – but it’s still a little early to bestow those kinds of compliments.

Speaking of things to do in Boston, I might have to check this out tonight or tomorrow. Could be a terrific digital camera opportunity, and a good time to try out my new years resolution of making stuff up about myself to see how other people react.
