The Kills at Revolution Live, Fort Lauderdale, January 28, 2012
The third time in the past few months that my concert-going expectations have been greatly exceeded: Incubus, My Morning Jacket, and now The Kills. Well worth the temporary paralysis I’m now experiencing from standing for 5 straight hours (in line and through 2 opening acts) at my age. At last September’s Incubus show, I was, of course, the oldest person there, until I saw someone possibly older than me out of the corner of my eye. Turned out he was just the guy selling T-shirts. At tonight’s performance, there were actually two people who looked older than me, but according to the buzz in the audience, they were none other than Alison Mosshart’s parents, who presumably live in the area. I’m sure they’re very proud. Their baby wailed. Stay tuned for video.
