John Cafferty & The Beaver Brown Band, Penn's Peak, Sept. 14, 2018 setlist

So this is incomplete, but what I remember... Really great, underrated band. Opener was the Scott Weis Band, who played some great blues rock (and even used a cigar-box guitar for a bit -- wonderful stuff).
  • Tough All Over
  • On the Dark Side (yep, 2nd song -- they got this out of the way early)
  • Boardwalk Angel
  • Victory Dance
  • Wild Summer Nights
I started a setlist.fm list, in case anyone else has a fuller setlist.

The Lion Roars, a last scream of Winter...

So March came in like a lion, with a snowstorm across the northeast (but only two inches here). But the lion is dying, one last stalking perimeter circle to show his strength, baring his teeth but gasping for breath. I feel Spring out there on the edges, looking furtively to see if it's safe to emerge. "Fuck the groundhog," it mutters, "I want Out." 

Soon, dear Spring, soon... we wait patiently, and hold candles against the dark.
