In other news, those of you who are getting to enjoy the Jonathan Richman experience on this tour, consider sending me or any of my lovely comrades a review of the show! We love to hear about it.
I got too excited and almost reposted a video from a few days ago. Whoops a doodle. So here's a different one, of Jonathan doing his thing at the Makeout Room. Whenever I see him perform, I'm always reminded of that old song of his, "Just About Seventeen". I mean, he's obviously gotten older, but there is something about him that is completely ageless, that makes him come across as much younger than he actually is. Part of that, I think, is the fact that after all these years, he still doesn't seem bitter or jaded to the whole thing. 99.5% of the stories I've heard about him show him being a kind and decent person. Or maybe it's just the dancing. I don't know, but I enjoy it.
