I Don’t Second That Emotion

Smokey Robinson
Barclays Center
December 11th

smokey robinson barclays

It’s no miracle that Smokey Robinson STILL sounds like good ol’ Smokey Robinson (or that he can rock a green outfit from neck to toe AND look simply amazing), but it is a absolute sin that I walked away from his concert dissatisfied. Yes, he played the sure-fire hits, and yes, they sounded great, but he only played 14 tunes in total, and 3 were shortened into a quickie Temptations medley. Where was ‘Shop Around’ or ‘Going To A Go Go’ or ‘Mickey’s Monkey’? Smokey was too busy padding time with pointless stories and jokes that a 6 year old could make. How could such a gifted writer have no gift for gab? And even if he did, why bother when there’s plenty more music he could have done sung? How could a Smokey Robinson concert not be amazing? That’s like an anti-miracle. And how could he have written the song ‘Love Bath’? It’s so gross that I need to take a hate shower after hearing it

Cat/Yusuf Scratch Fever

Cat Stevens / Yusuf Islam
Wang Theatre
December 7th

cat stevens boston

Dude, CAT FCUKING STEVENS. Dude, YUSUF FCUKING ISLAM. Whatever his name is, he may be a changed man, but the song/voice/soul/words remain the same – AMAZINGS!!!!! We’ve know his work for years, and were reminded of his genius by seeing Harold & Maude + Wes Anderson movies, but he’s always seemed so out of reach. Probably cause he hasn’t toured America since 1976. 19-SEVENTY-FCUKING-SIX!!!! I WASN’T EVEN BORN THEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, got the rare chance to see him, when he was inducted to the RnR HoF, and after taking in his tiny 3 song set, I wasn’t juss thirsty for more, I was on life support for more!!!! Had to see him again, in full. HAD TO!!! Europe and elsewhere had been lucky. He’d been touring there and there for awhile, and yet, still no US dates. That changed this fall when he announced a handful of North American dates. NY was originally on the docket, and then it wasn’t (something about paperless tickets, and NY not allowing it), and so I had to see him, ANYWHERE. Boston became the choice, and OH MAN OH MAN OH MAN OH MAN, it was a Boston revolution!!!! I was having a teabagging party for one – putting Cat’s balls in my mouth and sucking it all in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dude, Cat was like – listen to the wind of my soul. And we listened to the wind of his soul!!! And every time he did, I kept seeing this picture of him!!! Oh man, this 1st cut was the deepest. SO DEEP!! And so was the 2nd, and 3rd and billionth!!! I’ll always love you, CAT!!! Maybe I don’t love you. LIES!!! Man, all kinds of children play in his yard, but where do they play? Oh wait, he answered that. He loves his dog. I LOVE HIM!!! TRAPPED!!! Like a cat and a dog, in the old schoolyard. Remember those days? Cat does. We don’t, but he makes us remember. People got ready. They sung out, sung out. Boy did they. THEY ATE IT UP. Who wouldn’t. 1976 to now is like a forever

Everyone has a big boss, man, causing trouble, but set me free trouble!!! Cat’s old, but oh very young. Cat’s dying to live but living to die. STAY WITH US CAT!! Keep casting your moonshadow, as you are our sunshine. You make us foreigners feel like heaven, where our true love goes. Man, this world is wild. None of his cuts would end up on the editing floor. He gets the blues, and we get the chills. It’s not another Saturday night. It’s a SUNDAY TO REMEMBER. In fact, December 7th – a concert that will live in AWESOMEly!!! Why did the night have to end? Morning wanted to break, but he had to board the Peace Train, as it was heading to the next stop, for another father and son to cherish

The train is miles from anywhere, and nowhere. It made Lisa sad, but everyone was beyond happy

Cat, come back. Trains make more than one repeat stop, don’t they?

I mean, I still need to hear you play ‘Matthew & Son’
