phil ochs troubador

red eye flight but I never fell asleep last night

Last night, I went to see Vienna Teng (appearing with Alex Wong) at the Iron Horse with some of the usual suspects. Vienna was wonderful as usual, though my seat was someone obstructed view, so I spent most of the concert watching Alex (who is both a genius and quite easy on the eyes, so no hardship there).

The band I really want to talk about, however, is the opening act (also Including Alex Wong), a two-person group (with hired gun drummer?) called The Paper Raincoat (who were the evening's pleasant surprise). Highly recommended, if you like pretty, smart, kind-of-folky skinny hipster music.
