When I cook, I drink wine and listen to music, especially by musicians I’ve recently added to my “modest” music collection. I’m enthusiastic about music at the best of times, but even more so about my latest discoveries. And that’s how Passenger came up over dinner this past weekend. On a whim, Jan checked into concerts, and found Passenger is on tour, with two local shows … sold out shows. But tickets were still available for the concert in DC, and as luck would have it, I was packing for a trip to, you guessed it, DC. And that’s how last night, less than 48 hours after learning about the show, I found myself listening to Passenger.
It was an amazing show. Good music, self deprecating humor and a stage presence honed by a decade of busking is a dynamite combination. And seeing it all from 20 feet away made it one of the best shows ever.
