The Trades Club with Del Rey and Adam Franklin

What a fantastic night. Seeing Del and Adam play up close in the intimate atmosphere of the Trades Club was wonderful, and being asked to play the support for them was more than a bit special for this big Del Rey fan! Thanks to Mary at GNUF for making it happen.

Adam Franklin, Del Rey, and yours truly.
