In Concert: Earlimart

It’s almost dangerous seeing a band you like this much at a tiny place like the Hideout.

Dangerous like you might accidentally touch them or start raving about how awesome they are and do they need groupies because you could quit your d-a-y-j-o-b at ANY TIME. (No, I didn’t. Ask or quit.)

Mentor Tormentor kept me under its dreamy seduction for many, many months. The new release Hymn & Her is a bit subtler. Sparser in arrangement, tauter.

Comfortable stage banter, lovely harmonies, introspective lyrics. What a wonderful evening.

Note: Opener billed as “Peter & the Rabbits” was actually “The Office” a much buzzed-about Chi-town band. And they were good!
