Okkervil River,Cat’s Cradle, Carrboro NC, 06/01/11, originally uploaded by Ash Crowe.
Maybe there will be a night with three very different bands whose common element is the energy they bring to the stage and out of the audience (and not too much else) and the whole of the Cradle will dance and sing and sweat and laugh and cry along.
Things aren’t supposed to work quite that well. But last night EVERYTHING worked. And it was a glorious, sweaty, dancing filed, night of great music. The crowd was beautifully into all three bands. If they share a genre it is: bands that are awesome.
Fantastic 4 hours.
