In the middle of the night, everybody loves everybody.

"Take Off Your Sunglasses" by Ezra Furman and the Harpoons, who opened for Ida Maria tonight at the Basement. I'd never heard them before, and I like what I heard. The Basement, though, turns out to be the worst place ever to see a show. There are very few good places to stand because it is an actual basement, meaning there are support pillars all over the place, and they block the view of the teeny tiny stage, especially if you are a rocknroll kid and you are standing up close, next to the speakers. Then your view is obscured by the pillars AND the speakers, and you go home totally deaf. Yup.

In lieu of a craptastic cell phone camera picture (I have it here, but some tall kid's striped hooded sweatshirt is taking up most of it, and the aforementioned speaker is taking up the rest), enjoy Ida Maria here in a non-deaf-making acoustic recording.
