Tomorrow, Camper Van Beethoven Blasting Through Heavens Streets
David Lowery will never feel successful. He has been, so he should feel better about his life, but he will always compare his success to the Pixies or R.E.M. and feel that he was somehow left behind. Sure, he might be doing better than Paul Westerberg now, but who isn't? Bob Mould, if he was only guest DJ'ing at a guy disco, could get more people to a show than Paul Westerberg. However, David still feels discouraged. He won't tell you this. He will tell you he's content. But David is a little sad, and deep down, he always will be. Be nice to David if you see him. His music is better than most his Contemporaries, and it would be nice of you to tell him that. We in Heaven have an annual Lowery Day up here, and it is tomorrow, January 31. Celebrate with us by blaring some Camper Van loudly... or perhaps some "Teen Angst (What The World Needs Now)" by Cracker. Here's some live stuff that makes us excited for tomorrow. I love David Lowery, and I hope you do, too.
