Crowded Parking Lot

CROWDED HOUSE AT THE TABERNACLE: Hey, when? Now, apparently.

Last Wednesday in the parking lot outside the Tabernacle, I bumped into Matt Sherrod, drummer for the reunited Crowded House. He was wandering in search of decent cell phone reception. He indulged my fannish inquisition and even asked me if I had any requests. I suggested “Walking on the Spot,” a lilting, accordion-driven ballad from the group’s 1993 album Together Alone. “No,” he replied. Apparently they hadn’t rehearsed it. Bastards. Despite the rejection, I still had a great night. Alongside the hits, the group played some unexpected album cuts like "There Goes God," "When You Come," and "Italian Plastic" – songs I never expected I’d hear performed live.
