Richard Thompson visiting the wasteland.

Yeah, the title is a James McMurtry joke, but I digress.

Richard Thompson is coming to the cosmopolitan burg of Chico, CA on December 9th and is playing an intimate venue.

We have a good brewery here, and the owner likes live music, so, good for us.

The place holds 350 people, so, either we are in luck, or Mr. Thompson is really down on his.

They even list the showroom's specs:

Sierra Nevada Brewery Hi Fi Showroom

If any of y'all are in travelling distance, I'll buy the first two rounds!

(I only post this because this is the biggest thing to hit Chico since Loudon Wainwright III blew through town back in ought five.)

Mmm... Sierra Nevada. If I was in town, my first choice would be a Celebration Ale. Then I would hit the Chico Estate Harvest Ale.

You pansies! This is what I imbibe while listening to the Clipse mixtapes.

Re: Richard Thompson visiting the wasteland.

I was just kidding about the St. Ides; I used to drink that shiet in high school, though, and during college in Baltimore. We used to down malt liquor before going into clubs to save some $ on alcohol.

Buddha, what's that brew?

Re: Richard Thompson visiting the wasteland.

EKU 28 is one of the worst beers I've ever had.

It is made according to traditional beer making methods, only they use lots of grain and slow, cold fermentation to get the product naturally to 11% alcohol.

It tastes like beer that was scraped off the bottom of a basement dive bar (and yes, I do know whereof I speak!... ...)

Re: Richard Thompson visiting the wasteland.

Well, this iPod thing may turn out to be cooler than I expected. Sitting at the venue and drinking a Best Bitter Ale! It is a small place with QSC and DBX electronics and small JBL monitors. The room is about 60 feet deep and 100 feet wide. OK, that took a whole beer to write.

Hasta.

Really digging "Live Versions of Vintage Favorites, The Chrono Show."

Richard really is all that.

This disc is worth cheking out.
