If Jon Langford hadn't been backstage at the Hideout, I'd have been screwed

March's Interview Show was, in the planning, the show where nothing seemed to go right. The date had to be changed. Two guests had to cancel or postpone at the last minute. Vocalo's Brian Babylon saved my butt by agreeing to go on at the last minute — but getting to The Hideout isn't the easiest thing. And so when I introduced him . . . nothing. He wasn't at the bar yet.

So, we had to improvise. 

Sometimes the stars shine down on you. Sometimes Jon Langford is backstage with a guitar. Here he performs Mekons song "Millionaire" and sits down for a chat. (Some language, so use headphone at work.)

(Brian's great interview, which followed Jon, will post in a few days).
