I broke from my usual Father’s Day routine of hiding in my room listening to music that makes me cry, and instead invited Ian and Sheena to head out to Stern Grove to…well, listen to music that makes me cry. Specifically, today’s concert was John Doe (best known for being part of X, one of my favorite bands growing up) and Lucinda Williams. The place was packed, I was lucky to find a place to sit way up on the slippery hillside behind the trees, but the acoustics were still great.
It was such a gorgeous day, perfect for sitting in a eucalyptus grove and listening to sad/angry/sweet songs with happy people all around. A good analogy for her bittersweet music I think.
