The Pogues

We got down to The House of Blues to see The Pogues tonight.  It was a great show, a little bittersweet though, seeing just how badly Shane’s doing.  If you ever need an example of what long term substance abuse will do to you, picture a 51 year old man with no teeth, shuffling on stage.  Don’t get me wrong, he’s still got it and the rest of the bad was in fine form, it’s just a little sad because there could have been so much more.  I’m still glad I went, but I’d love to have a time machine, seeing them in 1985 would have been great.
