Image of the Day-“Suffering Jukebox”

September 2, 2008

It’s funny when you go into a show with zero expectations and come out a convert. That’s sorta how this show went down with me. I am not gonna be rifling through Berman’s trash anytime soon (as he seemed to be taking care of that himself on stage) but damn this concert was great. Easily in the Top 5 of the year (so far).

This turned out to be one hell of an enjoyable show. I was familiar with the Jews a tiny bit, but boy are they good live. David Berman’s stage presence is quite…schizophrenic?, at least on this night. The band, who was spot on though, more than compensated for his overall aloofness. More pics to come later.
