HBH 199

Young boy with guitar
Singing to an empty bar
- Unexpected joy!

An astonishing chance discovery, this: in a city where the rock bands are almost invariably distinguished by the mediocrity of their vocals, I drop into a deserted music bar on a slow mid-week night and find this young man with a sensational voice entertaining five of his mates.

An uplifting moment.  But also kind of depressing, when I reflect that this might well prove to be one of the best gigs I'll see all year.
