I first met Van Pierszalowski, of Waters, when our bands toured together in 2007. Then I played in Port O'Brien with him for a while in 2009, and then another band, more recently. We go back. He is good.
And his latest incarnation of Waters is great. I caught up with Van backstage at The Warfield last weekend when they were opening for Matt and Kim. It was a great show. Waters did a cover of Taylor Swift's "Blank Space" and it was awesome. So, there you go.
