"Great to see you guys but I've got to run."
"Us to, we're off to see Nick Cave at Massy Hall."
"Awesome, I just met the children's choir that is singing with him. Have a good one."
It was about fifteen minutes after the doors had opened for Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds and my friend Evan and I had just ran into my best friend Gavin while hurrying to the venue. In a quick hello, Gavin had completely thrown off our expectations of the show.
Nick Cave was using a children's choir?
I have been wanting to see the Bad Seeds ever since I had caught a glimpse of their show during some festival played on Much Music in the early to mid 90's. Watching what seemed to be a lounge act from Hell perform in suits in the middle of the day at a completely frantic pace just grabbed me.
Over a decade later, I was blown away.
