Great Balls O'Fire, It's Only Rock'n'Roll . . .

. . . but it got me out of the house.  Long-time music buddy, Jeff Rosner, sent me word about the Aussie band, Goodbye Motel, appearing at the old standby, Mercury Lounge, and that I might be interested in checking it out, ESPECIALLY due to the 3D visuals they incorporate into the set.  I'm not that into the current music scene but, what the heck, sometimes you just have to answer the call.  Plus I needed a break from the Bear Cave.  Thus it was that I hopped a train into the City on the evening of April 1 to see if Jeff still knows what he's talking about or was just playing the April Fool.  He DOES still know what he's talking about.  The band's visuals were indeed cool but, in a way, unnecessary as they were a really excellent and well-oiled performance machine with good AND VARIED material.   Very impressive.  And worth the trip because despite the VERY crowded room, I also got some cool photos.
