Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me

The TV Guide

Last night I drove 100+ miles north to Bakersfield, CA to see the amazing Morrissey in concert and let me tell you … it was a trip WELL worth taking. I got to see Moz last November in Escondido, CA (about 100 miles south of LA) so it was only apropos that I trek 100 miles north to see him this time around. I’ve seen the man in concert many, many times and he never disappoints. The setlist was full of gems, we got to hear some new songs and the man seemed (generally) in fine spirits. Click below to see some of the photos I snapped and check out video of his performances of Alma Matters, How Soon Is Now? and Everyday Is Like Sunday. More »
