I hate Jimmy Buffet. “Margaritaville” is one of those songs that gets stuck in my head for days on end, driving me nearly to madness. The very strains of “Cheeseburger in Paradise” make me want to go vegan. I do NOT wish I had a pencil-thin mustache, thank you.
So you may wonder then how I ended up seeing Changes in Latitude, the premier Jimmy Buffet tribute band, last night. The answer is this: My friend Thor.
Thor is my Friday Night Thing. He laughs easily and is always up for anything no matter how goofy, plus he shares my not-so-secret-but-deeply-shameful love of Moe’s. So when I saw that our little civic center was indeed getting a Jimmy Buffet tribute band, I knew we had to go. There is little I love more than an ironic concert, hipster that I am.
