Bruce performing Royals! Nah, not a great performance, but it is a once-in-a-lifetime event that speaks to why I try to put as much live music here as I can.

They’ll never be royals, never make the show, but even playing in the minors will remain a part of a fantasy life long after they’ve moved on to “real jobs.”
