Like a kid in a candy store
Meg and I just got back from Pete's Candy Store, a little bar in Brooklyn just off the Lorimer stop on the L. Thats what it looks like on the map at least. In reality it's a bit of a walk from the subway stop, and in sub freezing temperatures with lots of wind and cold blowing it feels even further. Anyway, we got there at 9:30 which was when the music was scheduled to start. About 20 minutes later Freeloader came on and played for almost an hour. They were a nice mix of guitars and drums and tried to play songs softly so they didn't disturb people in the bar section. The music there is actually in a back room with doors that close it off so it really wasn't an issue, but it was nice that they were considerate of their audience and those who didn't want to be a part of it. After their set there was a small intermission and The Navigators came on. I liked them a little better, probably cause I could understand the lyrics more and I liked their sound. And then we made a break through the cold got the L to 14th and took the A up to 207th. The most wonderful part of the trip home was hearing that the train was running express after 59th. As it was midnight by the time we got on the train it was quite a surprise since the express trains stop at 10:30 normally. (I know, I know enough about the transportation). Meg won the bet on how many people would be left on the train at the last stop. My guess was 4 other than us, and hers was any other number. Just a bit of an advantage over me, but I never would have expected 7 anyway. And we made it back with a few minutes to spare before 1.
