I have to confess, I was way excited to see openers The Broken West play. Headliner A.C. Newman? Not so much. His new music wasn’t grabbing as much as The New Pornos ‘Challengers’ did a couple years ago and I was WAY more into getting to the Brillobox for MOIP’s CD release show (which was unbelievably awesome…more soon). I did catch a good half hour of Newman’s set before I bailed and I can say I didn’t miss THAT much. More Tomorrow.
