Valentine’s Day this year was spent with a guy, at a Girls show. I was in San Francisco, about 1300 miles away from my wife. Luckily this is a city of good friends. The friend who attended this sold-out show with me at my favorite venue, Great American Music Hall, did not know Girls‘ music. He had heard the back story of sex, drugs and cults…and was a little disappointed in how mellow their music turned out to be. I think some of the crowd agreed with him because it seemed to thin out during their performance. I, however, thought it was a great show. They blasted through most of the songs on their debut album and even brought Cass McCombs up for a duet. Good show, good night, good way to end my week in the city.
