Tonight, these alt-country legends recreate Hollywood Town Hall and tomorrow, they bring out Tomorrow the Green Grass. They haven’t done as many farewell/reunion tours as the Who but it’s a shame they don’t bear down as closely with their great early material, such as Blue Earth. Still, Gary Louris is an underrated string-bender. They’re also planning a new record, which is likely to be better than anything Townshend has cooked up recently.
