Saw Leonard Cohen last night at The Midland.

And it was fantastic. Allison couldn't make it so I had my neighbor Andy, lead guitarist from Red Line Chemistry, roll with me. He'd never heard of Cohen, I found out as we walked to the venue. I reassured him it'd kick some serious ass and we were not disappointed at all. Arriving a few minutes after eight, we walked in right at the start of THE song I was desiring to hear the most; "Everybody Knows".

Cohen's library is an outstanding one with tunes I'm sure you've heard a time or two before. I highly recommend Googling his name and catching some of his videos. For a guy who just turned 75 he's still an exciting performer to watch and was recently inducted into the Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame with Lou Reed stating Leonard is of the "highest and most influential echelon of songwriters".
