John Prine

The man of the night moseyed around stage stiff-legged, unassuredly, a tad twitchy. When he spoke, he did so a bit nervously, eyes darting about, unable to settle his hands. He wore a sharp suit, all black and with the best of intentions, but ended up looking like an antebellum Kim Jong-Il.

Exene, like someone’s spunky aunt bedecked in multiple rosaries and a silk apron, grinned and chatted the whole time, engaging in banter with even the youngest and the drunkest present.
