Split Lip Rayfield last night at the Fox. What an amazing band. This is the first time I've managed to see them outside of the campground stages at Winfield (7 & 5), an environment which is at once something like perfect and probably an incredibly difficult place to project anything much at all. You can't help knowing that Kirk is missing, which I guess everyone who writes anything about them for the rest of time is going to mention. But you're glad they're playing. At least I am. Maybe in part because of all that.
