So a couple weeks ago I went to see Will when he played the Borderline, the massive difference between this and every other time I’ve seen him play in town is the size of the crowd.
Usually Whitmore shows are somewhat “intimate” (see crobar/frith street/mucky pup) and although he’s played borderline before this time it was properly sold out. I’ve NEVER seen the borderline that busy, and a really mixed crowd, the usual whiskey drinking tattoed (everyone I’ve ever met in my life) kids, but also a little more of a Mojo reading element and some actual dads. It’s the same thing that started happen to Lucero around Rogues, Rebels…. time. I’m not saying it’s a bad thing, in the slightest, just a notable one. It’s probably not going to change anytime soon either since he played on this weeks Jools Holland. It actually couldn’t be happening to a nicer guy, love that dude.
