Another Summer, Another LeCompt Show at The Springfield


We are beginning to take the brilliant cheesiness of LeCompt and his fantastic band for granted, because we've heard most of what they do-- but they usually throw in at least one new tune per set . . . this time it was David Bowie's "Five Years," a song that I love . . . but he had too much reverb on his voice and it was hard to understand the lyrics and no one in the bar knew what song he was singing, but he was certainly enjoying it, inserting his own lyrics into the mix-- he sang something about The Springfield (which my wife realized is the Jersey Shore's equivalent of The Corner Tavern . . . same color scheme) using his best Bowie voice . . . a good song to follow "Starman" and "I've Seen All Good People," and a welcome break from the six Paul McCartney songs he played to start the set.

Maddie will be 21 in 7 years. What's the chance they will still be playing the springfield by then?

Either they will be dead (at least the bass player will be) or they will have finally hit it big. My money is on dead. But I am looking forward to hanging out at a bar with your daughter and her girlfriends when she's 21.

no way they ever hit it any bigger than they are now. i will bet maddie a beer that they still exist in seven years (or four years if she can get a hold of a good fake ID).
