The Long & Short of It, Bar Pink Elephant, 5.15.08

The Ghostland Observatory show ended relatively early at the House of Blues, so after the show I said my goodbyes to my friends and made my way to Bar Pink Elephant in North Park to catch Ben and the guys of The Long and Short of It. A couple friends were there and told me that the bar was packed with people and when the band started there was a bit of a mass exodus. Most bands would be bummed out by this, but in this case, it's almost a sense of pride because the bar was cleared of the hipster element. It might also explain why when I passed, the line outside U-31 was 30 deep. Of course, I feel sorry for those people, because The Long and Short of It kicked ass, and when Ben is at the helm, like a minister speaking in tongues delivering a sermon, we get to bear witness and are made believers.
