Anna & Co. should be thankful, as we all are, that Reeves showed up Friday because the normal Tim trio is tough to top. Who is Reeves Gabrels? He plays guitar for a little band called The Cure and was David Bowie’s guitar player before that.
Where else can you get a free, kick-ass rock show with no cover and drink specials from 6:00-8:30 on a Friday? Seriously, if you know, tell me. How many other living souls can say that John Prine recorded one of their songs?
He has opened for punk the Ramones. He’s even been name-dropped in a Robbie Fulks classic “F This Town.“
This has always been my favorite way to end my week. Many of you know what I’m talking about. If you haven’t had the pleasure, I highly recommend you go next Friday. And every subsequent Friday.
