The Fenway

The Fenway

And there's a silence to that place
as you stand there in the sun
and there's also this haunting silent sorrow,
Cause the glory days have gone
And there is silence in the Gardner Museum
Where's that?
Well, it's on the Fenway, where I've dreamed my dreams
Boston's Fenway, where I've dreamed my dreams....

-- Jonathan Richman, from "The Fenway"

Jonathan played "The Fenway" at the Earl in Atlanta Thursday night and it was a moment of rare beauty. Although it was really really hot in there you could feel the crowd all getting goosebumps at the same time.

More later.
