The weekend before last I caught the legendary English Beat at Stern Grove.
It was a blast. The weather held up and everything was perfecto. The sound could have been a little louder and it really wasn't the original Beat, but hey...the did play "Tendernesss" by General Public too...so no real complaints. On my way home I stopped by the Riptide out in the sunset and caught a little bit of Ralph Carney's band called The Cottontails. Carney is known mostly for playing with Tom Waits! Talked with the drummer, Randy Odell, for a while...who shredded and had to take a photo with Ralph on my way out. What you get is one half a Moss with the full Carney.
