The New Pornographers LIVE!

Rock shows by the higher-profile national bands seldom come to Richmond...they usually hit Chapel Hill N.C. and skip right by our fair city on the trip up I-95 to Washington D.C. But tonight's a different story. None other than Canadian supergroup the New Pornographers are playing tonight at a newish local joint called Toad's Place, and Mrs. Chappy and I couldn't be more excited! We've actually secured a sitter and we're going out on a weeknight (I'm voluntarily missing the Penguins game, too), looking forward to what promises to be a spectacular feast for the ears (and if Neko Case is present on this tour, for the eyes as well!).

For the illustration tie-in, here's the pencil art for a commission I did for a friend several years ago of the aforementioned Neko Case...though if I had it to do over, I'd probably fix her nose a bit!

How was the show? My wife and I caught them in Pontiac and enjoyed them quite a bit. We weren't crazy about the opening band though. I forgot their name, but their music was monotonous and dragged on too long.
