Tonight is Opeth and Enslaved at 9:30 Club. I’m going with my understudy, Stephen, who is perhaps the only 25 year-old I know (admittedly, I don’t know many) that’s into Sir Lord Baltimore, Wishbone Ash, Pentagram and Papa John Phillips. Plus he came out of the hardcore/metal universe and roadied for Jay Reatard. And he’s totally obsessed with the Rolling Stones‘ debauchery. I mean, the kid sends me pictures of Anita Pallenberg now. (Compare that with a shot from back in the day!) Stephen also sends links to Ronnie Wood chillaxin’ with his Russian child bride, which just makes me feel icky.
Tonight is gonna be a blast.
