My friend Irina and I met for a drink tonight, and instead of going to one of the usual places, we picked a bar called Grog - for the sole reason it was in the neighborhood, we've never been there, and they promised an '80s band. It's been a while since I've seen live music in a bar.
As it turned out, the band wasn't an '80s band, but more specifically, a Tom Petty tribute band.
Yes, TOM PETTY.
I'd have liked to have been in the room when they decided, "Hey, let's only do songs by Tom Petty." Is it just me, or is that rather obscure?
The entire evening, my friend and I were trying to come up with what tribute bands we'd put together that might be on par with the Tom Petty band.
She was going to start a Rick Springfield band.
I made a joke about being in a Carpenter's tribute band thinking that was ridiculous but, the more I thought about it, that'd be pretty bitchin'.
