Polvo "Tragic Carpet Ride" live at the Black Cat 5.10.08

Yes, it’s weird not to be able to pick up and go see any show at the spur of the moment like I used to. But at least YouTube is there to remind me what I missed, even with all its shitty camera phone recordings. Having to miss Polvo’s reunion shows this past spring hurt more than most, and this video of the band performing a re-arranged version of its classic “Tragic Carpet Ride” pours salt in the wound. Ash Bowie’s new guitar intro makes it worth sitting through the less than ideal quality, though. The douchiness of reunions notwithstanding, Polvo still destroys.
