The show was just about great; the only negative I can say about the gig has nothing to do with Man Man. The hall was damn hot. I actually sweat. Amazingly, the heat didn't make the place start stinking or anything, though. That would have been bad.
Anyway, while watching, I couldn't help but think about how well Man Man will do on this upcoming tour with the Mouse. Both groups have a clear affinity for Tom Waits, and Man Man's maniacal blend of Waits and Captain Beefheart is sure to electrify Mouse fans ... if they haven't heard the Philly band before. I'll go on record right now and say that by the time Man Man lays down its next record, it's on a major label. That's my opinion, and I'm sticking to it.
Give Manic Productions ups for this one. These guys don't get enough credit for bringing quality fare, the kind of stuff that sometimes skips over Connecticut, to our state.
In other news, Spoon comes to Toad's tonight. I can't wait for this show. This will be one of the last concerts at the York Street venue before it goes on its 90-day "vacation," so make sure to get out there and enjoy.
That's it from this end. Have a good one.
