Saw The Smithereens last night at B.B. King's. Together 36 years, and they still kick major ass.
A real treat: they did their first album, the transplendent Especially for You, from start to finish. An even bigger treat (at least for me): I got a shout out from frontman Pat DiNizio during the set, and there was a brief flash of a photo of moi and 'Reens drummer Dennis Diken in the video montage/scrapbook that was shown during the performance.
And later they did this song, from their third album, which I'm ashamed to admit I'd forgotten.
I think the word for that one is -- WOW!!!
In any case, just a great rock-and-roll night. Brought a tear to my ancient eyes.
