1. “I went to The Pill for the first time.”
“How was it?”
“It’s great. It’s a new wave / indie pop dance night. Good crowd; hipsters, but less intense.”
“Yeah, dialed up only to about a 3. Not trying as hard to not try as hard, if that makes any sense.”
2. I had the above conversation with Rachel V. at Copperfield’s Down Under, a basement bar and music venue near Fenway attached to the well-known Red Sox boozer. We were there (along with Vickie and RJ) to see Bonus Round, a cover band fronted by a coworker of mine. They played all night to a bar packed to capacity and covered both Concrete Blonde and K’s Choice, and if you need me to say than that I can’t say enough. I’ll be seeing them again.
3. There is no #3.
