Me. Last Saturday Night.
So, Saturday night the mister and I put some newspaper and bowls of kid chow on the floor and headed downtown! Johnny Marr, y’all! And the man did not disappoint. He did play some old Smiths gems, but they were woven in through his new stuff WHICH IS AMAZING. Have a listen:
That’s The Marr himself walking around Manchester to the tune of New Town Velocity. I never saw The Smiths, but this show was catchy, upbeat and filled me with HAPPY. And yes, he is even better than you might imagine. I always assumed that those wild sounds he coaxed out of his guitar were partially sound engineering pyrotechnics, but it is all Johnny. Bless.
