    Wed 18 Feb – Ben Kweller, The Watson Twins

    This was my fourth Kweller show.
    And this is how the day went down.

    I went to pick up Melissa from Parkside at like noon so we could be back in time to get Rachel from East, and so I could log on and buy Folds Indianapolis tickets that were supposed to go on sale at 2 PM. Then saw that they postponed it to 4 PM. Siiigh. Some point Mel texts me that Kweller is eating out somewhere in Milwaukee according to his twitter. Sad that I missed that. ALSO Missed Mai's email about being able to come down to the soundcheck. That is the saddest bit.

    The Watson Twins opened. They're good. (Of course they are.) I'm still not over the fact that they were OPENING for Kweller. Seems like they should be a co-headlining gig. But whatevers. Half their set was covers. Do I just think they're more famous than they actually are? Shrug.

    Ben Kweller put on a great show. Yeah, Changing Horses is rather country. Okay, very.... …
