I went saw The English Beat at the SLO Downtown Brewery last night. This was the first time I’ve been to the brewery in a really long time (the last time, the bands played upstairs, now they play downstairs).
It was really fun. I didn’t realize how many songs the English Beat did that I recognized. The venue was good, the band was good, and the crowd was good too. You’ll see by my Blackberry-taken photo above showing some hair loss of some of the guests, the crowd may have been a bit older than the typical Downtown Brewery event.
Although the lead singer is the only original band member, it sounded just like The English Beat.
I could have skipped the opening band as they were at least twice as loud as The English Beat and my ears were ringing.
