Refugees From the Khyber

Went to see Spoon last night. Everybody loves Spoon!

Anyway, there seems to be a thing about bands who hit it bigger joking about the bad old days when they played the Khyber when they come through Philly.

The Khyber isn't a bad place to see a band, but it's probably an awful place to perform as a band. There's a tiny little stage, and it seems you have to sneak through a little panel door out the front to get your equipment in.

The Decemberists made the same "joke" when I saw them. That would have been interesting. Almost as interesting as seeing Gogol Bordello at Tritone.
