This was a memorable night. Craig Hilmer was in town fromt he midwest. We had traded tapes for years but this was the first time we met face to face. The Bernat brothers came up from San Diego for the occasion as well. We were trying to figure out what to do for the night. I was lobbying to see Penelope at Starry Plough because both the artist and venue are awesome, and the Bernats were trying to persuade Craig to go to Beat Farmers at Slim’s. We decided on Penelope. I had a few too many pints and crashed on Craig’s hotel room floor. I woke up the next day extremely hung over and drove home while the Oakland hills were on fire. Very surreal.
Penelope played 2 sets, almost 2 hours of music and no repeats. Great stuff!
