Probably don't need to be posting this as a new topic but, hey! i'm excited at the prospect of seeing Howe Gelb in Whelan's next week. Love his last album and all of the Giant Sand back catalogue as well as his AAAA stuff with M Ward, Grandaddy to name but two associated luminaries. Have never seem him live. Anyone see him perform before? Heard that he's a bit of a character (who couldn't guess from his tunes!) and that he is prone to stopping in the middle of songs and going off on tangents and telling stories - this, in my opinion, does not seem like a bad thing although it might be frustrating.
Can i get some love for Howe Gelb? (no he hasn't called me and asked me to bring "chicks" for the after-show party
