Ted Leo and The Pharmacists

August 23, 2019
Starting: 8:00 PM

It's a comforting cliché that "you can't keep a good man down," but of course you can. Good men and women and non-gender-conforming people are kept down all the time. The world crushes the good and talented and honest and decent unsparingly. We've all got our own problems for sure, and god knows there's a hierarchy of pain, but let's not pretend the day to day leans towards "fair." So, what do we do, naked and afraid, with nothing but wolves at the door to use as warmth? Huddling helps. Songs are useful. Communicating via direct message is pretty good, but a true song, sung by someone who stood with us for more than a while, whose lyrics made sense when we were marching in the street or drunk in the bar, well, that works too.
