billy bragg tonight

tonight i’m heading downtown with my lovely wife in order to do something that i’ve never done which is to see a live music show by billy bragg. I’ve been to live music in the burg, but didn’t get out to any in nyc or chicago yet, and well i’ve never really done one like this. should be fun.
