I went to the largo last night to see Jon Brion. David Garza opened for him. this guy has an amazing voice and sings in spanish sometimes. beautiful!! he started out with a song in spanish then did two of my favorite songs: too much and disco ball world!
it seemed that everyone was there last night. meaning all largo regulars old and fairly new. it was like a mob scene. a fun mob scene!
jon started out with one of my favorite songs further along. then a few other songs and later some beatles just like i wanted him too, as if he read my mind or something. david garza and benmont tench were called upon the stage and it was an everly brothers night. strange but true. they did i think four or five everly brothers songs which included "wake up lil' suzy" my pop would have liked that one! he always told me i was named about that song. weird but i ask my mom and she says i was named after the model suzy parker. parents, what are you gonna do? benmont was tom pettys piano player. i remember 1976, when tom petty and the heartbreakers cassette was released. i had to have it along with stevie nicks/tom petty - stop dragging my heart around. my mom, my sister and I were traveling somewhere in her brown oldsmobile 442 (which i thought was an eye sore as a kid) as we did a lot back then and i just remember having to stop at a record store along the way and pick up the new tom petty. i was 8!!
tonight.......robyn hitchcock will be at the largo along with me, my best friend sandy, her boyfriend dave and his brother/my ex-boyfriend of 10 years andy and his wife kim.
this will be fun!! no really it will. i like them all. :)
