Happy Birthday, Pilot Light

Jason Boardman and his staff got all dressed up Friday night to celebrate the ninth anniversary of Pilot Light in the Old City. It was a low-key event, with performances by several acts closely associated with the club—New Madrid, Big Bad Oven, and a solo set by guitarist Eric Lee. The casual nature of the night could be attributed to several other downtown draws the same night, but also to Boardman's last-minute planning. He said he didn't start thinking about an anniversary night until earlier that week.
