Just getting ready to head up to Chicago to see Mr. Cave and the Bad Seeds Friday night, and was wondering if any other dopers were going. I have not purchased his last two albums; but he represents such a chunk of my record collection that I feel I owe it to myself to see him once. This will be my first time. And while I’m sure it will be good, I had the fortune to see Tom Waits on his Mule Variations tour, and I seriously doubt anything will top that for me, ever.
But, again, Nick Cave still holds a special place in my heart. I was traveling in Europe and found a record store in northern Italy that had his entire collection, all the way thru good son, on vinyl. In those days I would buy records even if I already owned them on CD, just, well, just because. I bought them all and lugged those damned things around on my back for weeks.
So while his heyday may be waining…
Anyone else going?
