Any one see a pretty major act at a really small venue? I'm a huge fan of the British folk singer Frank Turner, who's currently opening for Offspring in big venues across the U.S. But this weekend Offspring was playing in a local festival, so Frank played at a small rock club in downtown Albany. My friend and I were five feet from the stage the whole show, and the banter between songs was literally a conversation with the 12 or so of us in the crowd. Other than a group that drove from NYC for the show and talked loudly through the song they didn't know, it was one of the best live music experiences of my life. Even after a group of kids tried to mug us on the walk back to the car (which I admittedly parked in a bad neighborhood), I was still left with a positive glow from the night.
