When we heard that Pete Yorn was going to celebrate the 10th anniversary of releasing Musicforthemorningafter, we had to get tickets. It’s the album we put on to get us in a good mood every time we leave Mammoth to drive home to L.A. and one of the last albums that will ever be pried out of my cold, dead hands. So Bryan got seats in the balcony (because of my own “Strange Condition”) and we stayed out late on a school night this week. Pete told stories about how he wrote the songs, including how a song basically wrote itself from an electric guitar worthy of AC/DC that had a broken neck that was taped back together. The back of the guitar had “Nancy” scratched in the enamel, so he called the song “For Nancy.” Bryan knew the keyboard player, Joe, so we got stickers for the after party. There was a line and even Pete’s mom had to wait. Hollywood is a tough town if the star’s own mom can’t bypass the velvet rope!
