Saw Poco last Friday night in Lawrence with Brown Eyes.Â Liberty Hall.Â Drinks with friends beforehand at the Eldridge, then crossed the street to one hell of a fine show.Â Joint was full of old hippies, young hipsters, and a phalanx of people somewhere in between.Â Sold out.Â
So fine to hear that sound again, this band that influenced so many others: Eagles, Jackson Browne, Pure Prairie League…Â Richie Furay even came out and played with them after finishing his set: mandolins, steel guitars, and that incredible harmonizing.Â I loved the vibe of it all.Â Felt like the concerts of old.
I’m extremely jealous – wish I could have seen this show. Crazy Eyes is one of my favorite albums – top 5. Ah, the memories.
Well actually I was surprised not seeing you there, rocking out with all the other young hipsters up by the stage. What happened?
