Tonight marks the appearance of The Swell Season at the Cobb, and I am still kicking myself for not going (and it hasn't even happened yet). But priorities are priorities. Please, please, please tell me how the show went; I'm dying to find out how the stars of the fantastic 2007 movie Once (all but my favorite movie of the year) fare in concert.
For a refresher, here's my DVD review of the movie. It's a keeper (the movie, that is, not so much the review). It reminds me once again how 2007 was a great year for rock n' roll in movies, whether it was feature films like Once or documentaries. Since that article, of course, Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova won the Oscar for Best Original Song for "Falling Slowly." (And deservedly so.)
To whoever's going tonight: Flick a lighter for me.
