[CANCELLED: October 10, 2020] Peter Bjorn and John / Methyl Ethyl [rescheduled from April 7]

indexWhen this show was postponed back in April, October seemed so long ago.  But it also seemed like a reasonable amount of time before we could see live music again.  Bigger bands postponed until 2021, but surely a small club would be ready by October.

Sigh.

I really got into Peter Bjorn & John a few years ago.  Then they fell by the wayside for me.  When I saw they were playing at Johnny Brenda’s I thought it promised to be a good show.  I have since heard that PB&J put on an amazing live show, so I was even more excited about it.

Methy Ethyl is a band from Australian who I don’t know anything more about them except that the solo show was going to be done by Jake Webb, the creative force behind the band.

On July 28, the band officially cancelled the tour

Dear PBJ-people and supporters!
It is with utter disappointment and sadness that we are forced to announce that the North American tour-dates supporting #endlessdream have been cancelled, due to COVID-19 and the uncertainty surrounding the virus.

The #endlessdreamtour has so far been but a dream and continues to be so for the time being. We hope, of course, to return as soon as it is safe to play shows again. In the meantime, refunds should start to process soon. If you have any questions, please contact your point of purchase.

We firmly believe “Endless Dream” is one of our strongest albums yet, and also ideally suited to the stage, so we can’t wait to get out there and bring those new songs to life. If you want to support the band until we can, purchase the beautiful vinyl-album or other merch-items.

All our best and talk soon!!
Peter Bjorn and John

[POSTPONED: April 7, 2020] Peter Bjorn and John / Methyl Ethyl [moved to October 10]

indexI really got into Peter Bjorn & John a few years ago.  Then they fell by the wayside for me.  When I saw they were playing at Johnny Brenda’s I thought it promised to be a good show.  I have since heard that PB&J put on an amazing live show, so I was even more excited about it.

Methy Ethyl is a band from Australian who I don’t know anything more about them except that the solo show was going to be done by Jake Webb, the creative force behind the band.

I wound up having a huge conflict on this night because Laura Marling, whom I love announced a solo show the same night.  I was genuinely torn between seeing someone I had seen before, but in an amazing setting and someone I had not seen before who I had heard was amazing.

[CANCELLED: April 7, 2020] An Evening with Laura Marling

indexI saw Laura Marling three years ago and she was amazing live.  I felt the venue was a little too large and crowded for the intimacy she produces.

I really wanted to see her again, but she took some time away from touring.

Then she announced this wonderful night: an evening of just her playing requests and who knows what else.

Wow, was I excited about this.  I already had tickets to see Peter Bjorn and John, but I think I would have gone with this one.

She will not be rescheduling this intimate tour, sadly, because she is planning on a full band tour next year.  So for now we just have to watch her guitar lessons on Instagram, which are actually even more intimate than this show would have been.
