DAVID KILGOUR

The night started out like a normal birthday party. There was a coconut cake from Miss Lily's and a seven-layer caramel cake from Caroline's Cakes (a Christmas gift from Imperial Woodpecker). I took a Marinol, one of my "pot pills" then out of nowhere, David Kilgour walked in the door. I wasn't sure if I was hallucinating. David, one of my all-time favorite artists, with his friend Tony, then played a full set which included some of my favorite Clean songs and material from his solo career. After a break for some cake and whiskey, and realizing this wasn't a hallucination, they played an encore which included Drawing to a Hole. After another short break, the band plugged into amps and grew to include Joe on drums and Lucy on keyboard. We weren't going to let them leave without playing Point That Thing Somewhere Else. It was a beautiful night, thank you.
