old man luedecke
After loving Old Man Luedecke's music for what seems like ages, I finally got the chance to see him live and in person last weekend! I am quite possibly the geekiest, most eager fan, ever, so I plunked myself in a front row seat, went right up to him out in the lobby of the Al Whittle theatre and even asked Adam to take a picture. OML was very kind, gracious, and humoured me. My favourite thing was the way he thanked the audience after each song - he seemed so genuinely pleased and appreciative. It was as if no one had ever clapped for that song, ever, and he was completely delighted.
And in completely related news, this month there's a free download of his first album over on his site. Go download it! (And his others, as well.) Happy Saturday!
