Went to The Compound Grill last night to see If Then. They’re really great, very different, and their fans are big fans. They do a lot of familiar songs with extremely creative, very musical arrangements, great showmanship, and spectacular tap dancing.
It was a good audience, but not a packed house, which it should’ve been. But then someone told me, well, it’s a Tuesday night, the middle of the week, and also, it’s the day after Valentine’s Day, implying many people were probably tired from having been out the night before doing the Valentine’s Day thing & I thought OMG – this is possibly the second worst night of the year for a band to have a show, second only to perhaps, the Super Bowl.
Well, then the crowd was fantastic – but how ‘bout a Saturday night next time people?
