It’s already been two years since I did the first Blue February show, and for the last week or so I’ve been talking to musicians, including Carlos and Nina who played last time, about doing another concert of melancholy love songs.
Any locals who’d be interesting in such a thing? My idea then and now is that there’s enough nonsense revolving around the romance of Valentine’s Day. There should be a place you can go on your own that night and not be confronted by yet another reminder that you’ve got no date.
And live music. Songs about heartache and loss. Songs about cowboys and cowgirls who can’t get it together. Settlers and Indians who refuse to give peace a chance.
What’s your choice? Would you want to come here some Amis play sad, sad songs?
