Al Frankin

Just something short, because I'm tired.  Beth came back from four days in Detroit tonight, and then we went straight to see Al Frankin at the Paramount with Scot and Jene.  I didn't know what to expect -- he doesn't really do standup, more like storytelling with political messages mixed in.  It was pretty funny, and I mostly agree with him, so it was a good night.  The opening act was Todd (from Big Head Todd and the Monsters), which was weird.  The whole evening (concert?  show?) was technically a funraiser for Al Frankin's PAC, which was another odd touch.

After the show, we went to Magianni's for dinner, and it turned out that that where Frankin went too.  Not that we talked to him, but we saw him and his entourage leaving shortly before we did...
