Sweet Nothing

Meanwhile, the cavernous acoustics of Cummings Hall didn't aid the situation, and the sound sucked big horrible things. That didn't faze the teenage girls in the audience, though. All two of them got close to the stage during the second song and stayed there for the rest of the set, dancing madly, oblivious to the lethargic adult audience behind them. I thought back to something else Smith said when I asked him about Brian Connolly. "Sweet defined the idea that rock works best when it's a colorful explosion of sight, sound and sexual tension for little girls. That's rock 'n' roll, man."

Hail, hail.
