hear it: wakey!wakey! at le poisson rouge

if you squint you can make out Mike Grubbs at the piano...

A friend of mine who was out at sea on Navy deployment told me about Wakey!Wakey!. Shortly after, I went to see W!W! perform at Maxwell's in Hoboken, and have been listening to their music on repeat ever since. My friend got home safe and sound, and I got us tickets to see them at le Poisson Rouge. I hadn't seen him in 3 years, so we had some catching up to do. We had dinner at Bread, then went down to the Whiskey Tavern where I was pressured into trying a spicy back (ew!). We went to Poisson Rouge, where I was delighted to find a photo booth (then promptly demanded we take photos, since even though we've known each other our whole lives, we had no photos of us together). 

During the show my friend noticed that they woman standing next to us looked a lot like Sadie from Across the Universe. He finally got up the nerve to talk to her, and it was indeed Dana Fuchs. She was very nice, and ended up inviting him to her show in April that's sold out. The show was amazing, as expected, and Mike Grubbs even signed some stuff for us. Fun night!!
