This video has been helping me to get through the last few days.
I was fortunate to attend the Pokey LaFarge concert at Terminal West in Atlanta on December 6. I’ve been wanting to see him perform for awhile now and I wasn’t disappointed. You can always tell when an artist or band has been touring for years. Their shows are tight and solid. This was certainly the case with Pokey LaFarge. They played an enjoyable selection of oldies, recents and brand new tunes and there wasn’t a dud in the bunch. It was unfortunate that they had to play without their multi-instrumentalist side-man, Ryan Koenig, who was struck by a car in Charleston, SC the night before and was in the hospital recuperating. Ryan will be forced to miss the remainder of the tour but the band proved they will continue marching ahead, even if with a slight limp.
I was able to photograph the show and I’m posting a few of the photos here. If you wish, you can see more photos in larger format on my Flickr account.
I’m posting a link to The Ryan Koenig Recovery Fund for those who might want to donate a few dollars to Ryan’s medical expenses. Help if you can.
