In an effort to get the 2009 shows on the 2009 books, we're having a bit of a yard sale on post-show galleries. It's a mixed bag, but all the more fun! The English Beat, for example, were in town at the end of November at the Troubadour, cranking out an impressive and beloved catalog. It's great when a band can tear through a Greatest Hits list and still make you feel like you're hearing it all for the first time. And if you've never experienced the live versions of "I Confess" or Smokey Robinson's "Tears of a Clown", you really haven't enjoyed the 80s.
