The one band that got the handful of people generally excited was Eli "Paperboy" Reed & The True Loves. Even the kids who stalked out a spot in the shed for The Killers came over to see what all the fussin' was about. I actually saw people having a good time -- all 20 of them! I think people who see him, get him and what he's doing. It's just great, party music on a pleasant day. He seems to be a one-of-a-kind act on the scene, and one of hardest traveling people I've seen. He's always on the move, opening up for various people. Nic Atkins even caught had them open up for her at the Stone Pony. Even Duffy is tapping him for a few dates.
