We missed you the other night at the Jonathan Richman show. No doubt you had to miss it because, after all, it was a school night. But how many more chances to see him will you get? Here's a musician who doesn't perform concerts, but holds "parties". Jonathan and drummer Tommy played their hits and did some improv. Jonathan frequently put his guitar down and picked up shakers. He danced and tried to get the Denverites to party. But we were too uptight, I'm afraid. People don't understand Jonathan Richman in a world where we are constantly offered thirty dollar massages, craft beer, fantasy football. He doesn't quite fit because he freely gives from his heart. He gives so much that it makes the experience awkward. What's the catch? People are waiting for the scam, but there is no scam. It's real. When the show ended, the workers outside were already taking the letters down from the marquee.
