Our run of shows with Tall Dwarfs comes to a close at J.C. Dobbs in Philadelphia with Chris and Alec joining us during our encore for a big-band rendition of “Crush,” 22 years ago today. Things go somewhat less swimmingly five years earlier at the same venue. It’s game 7 of the World Series, and there’s a lot more interest in the Twins victory over the Cardinals than in our opening set for the Windbreakers. Not that I don’t understand why, but did there have to be a tv in the bar to drive the point home? Unaware that the Windbreakers are planning a two-hour set (I mean, come on, who plays that long?), we go on surprisingly early and, completely dispirited afterwards, plot our strategy for the next time we feel so taken for granted. Little do we know that that will be our very next show, three days hence. See you soon!
