Nils Lofgren at the Birchmere by chipgallo posted Sep 17, 2018 at 1:00 PM My friend Dave Poole made the trip to Alexandria last Friday and scored same-day tickets to the show. Seems that once TicketMaster has gouged as many people as possible, they turn over the surplus tickets to the Birchmere who sells them at face value. I snapped a few photos from our table which are viewable on Flickr. Walter Johnson HS alumni may remember when Nils started out playing in the school cafeteria and other Bethesda venues. He has been in the bigs since working the keys on Neil Young's "After the Gold Rush" album and others. The Birchmere event had his brothers with him on stage and wife in the audience. The chili was decent too.
