curtiss a lennon show tonight
one of my favorite voices will be singing john lennon tonight at first avenue. an impromptu tribute 26 years ago has become a heartfelt tradition. i remember curtiss a. as the legendary "dean of scream" and the man flat puts out live. sort of a mix between james brown, howlin' wolf, and an overcaffeinated paul mccartney. doors are 5:30 and tickets are $10-12 at 701 1st ave. n. in minneapolis (612.332.1775). i'll show up late, after the big guy in back battles the stillwater heavyweight tonight.
still don't think its worth venturing out on a cold minnesota night? just imagine this voice doing lennon with love. 'nuff said.
