Sorry I missed Social Junk and Big Nurse last night, but sometimes you just gotta lay down and close your eyes for a few hours. The night before I did enjoy the magnificent splendor of seeing Richard Lloyd and Billy Ficca (of the amazing/godly Television) along with some considerably younger blond fellow on bass--his name escapes me. I feel really bad about that because he did an excellent job backing these legends through an old fashioned power trio set that spanned Lloyd's latest solo album, two well chosen numbers from Marquee Moon ("Friction" and "Elevation"), and here's the kicker, five Hendrix covers. The whole set did the job and basically reaffirmed my fundamental world views in the most cathartic of ways. A fine night at Club Dada.
