It Can’t Get Better Than This

Bill Kopp and Dennis Diken backstage at the Charlotte Pop FestThe only thing better that spending an evening interviewing Dennis Diken of The Smithereens — discussing his new album Late Music (in stores tomorrow! review here) would be to interview him and then see the Smithereens in concert.

No, there’s something better than that: interviewing Dennis Diken and then seeing two Smithereens shows — one an in-store, and one a full concert.

That’s how I spent my weekend. It’ll take some time to gather my thoughts and review my notes. There’s lots to discuss.
