I had a great time seeing music last night at Light Club Lamp Shop. I had been thinking of checking out Cricket Blue and their opening band at Radio Bean, but I worked until 8:30 which is when that show started. The show at the Lamp Shop started at 9 so the timing was a little better. I got out right on time, did a quick turnaround at home then took the lovely walk downtown.

The church bells rang nine as I walked into the club and Milton Busker was on stage and ready to start. I grabbed a seat and a drink while Milton sang, played acoustic guitar, and added in some effects. He is a very talented songwriter and a solid performer and his gentle voice and guitar playing washed over the room. The first song was pretty cool but on the second one the music took a dark and moody turn as he pulled out a searing Dogs At The Door. He followed with Jesus In Chains and at one point he let his voice soar with power and fill the shop. That set the tone for the rest of the show. He played several very catchy songs with intriguing lyrics. He mostly sang with a gentle force but brought it over the top now and then. He played new songs like The Whole from his album that was released on Friday. He did a great job with Ordinary Day, and even tossed in an amazing cover of Locked In The Trunk Of A Car. His fifteen song set filled an hour and was brilliant for every note.

Here is Milton’s take on the night

 

Light Club Lamp Shop – 07.12.16

After he wrapped up, I hung out for a bit. The next act on was called Local Dork which is Bob Wagner and Matthew Bryan Hagen mixing records and adding in some fun comments. They were kind of cool but when my drink was done, I headed out the door. I love the fact that there are so many talented people doing so many different things in our town.
