thanks to my pal Bree, once or twice a week I get to write about either upcoming rock shows, recent gigs, or in today’s case, a classic show.
Joy Division / New Order were not bands I loved because they were post punk, dreary, with drum machines. But over time I have warmed to them.
Today I was asked to write about their final show which happened on this day in 1980.
One reason I like to write about these shows is because I learn so much. Also because Bree is encouraging and so nice to work with.
Looking at the stats, I’ve done 50 pieces for her.
Recently I did stories about Metallica in Holland, Weezer in Pomona, and Janet Jackson in Florida.
