I’m pleased somebody snapped a shot of Archie Powell at Saturday’s Halloween show at Subterranean:
A friend assumed Courtney Love at first. I agreed. Blonde punky chick. Done. But then a mid-set outfit change signaled Madonna. Archie, which one? (It was Ke$ha.)
In back you by god better notice it’s Quailman on drums. RJ, this one‘s for you.
“Most Unique” hands-down goes to Ryan, who was seated way stage right and missed the shot. His face said mouse, butt said raccoon and chest said B cup.
Archie Powell & The Exports‘ Halloween show was my first Archie show in awhile. Regardless what I like about these guys is how clearly they expect little more than party at live shows. They’re an intentional band and have played a serious amount of shows this year, but they keep the business at the top of Subterranean’s coiled stairway. Archie wants a good time, and that’s it.
