No Second Troy

No Second Troy Last night I stayed out a little too late for a Thursday, but that doesn’t mean I slacked off completely. I spent the evening at the Rock and Roll Hotel listening to No Second Troy, a local band whose guitarist is a friend of my wife. Their name is an allusion to the Yeats poem of the same name, which is itself an allusion to Homer’s Iliad. Moreover, the stickers they handed out featured this image from one of their recent album covers, putting us in mind of Iwo Jima as well. By my count, that’s three good pieces of found history in one smokey club. Not bad for a night out.
