The Beast + Big Band, Motorco, Durham NC, 06/06/12, originally uploaded by Ash Crowe.
Duke Performances’ “Music in the Gardens” series got started last night with The Beast + Big Band at Motorco.
The rainy weather yesterday morning posed to much of a risk of returning so we got treated to this show at Motorco instead of in the Gardens.
It was interesting to see The Beast’s music reworked with the big band collaborators for this show. The tightly packed club added to the energy on stage and the band fed of the crowd very well.
Next Music in the Gardens show is next Wednesday at 7 w/ The Old Ceremony.
