I had a great time seeing music last night at The Daily Planet. I got going around 7:30 and arrived just before the 8pm start time. I grabbed some dinner and a drink and the lovely Silver Bridget began to play. With electric guitar, acoustic guitar and musical saw they have an ethereal sound and enchant us with well know classic songs. The day had been dreary and foggy so beginning with Follow The Sun was a cheery opener. Can’t Help Falling In Love sounded great in the second spot then they played the first of several songs that I’m sure I know, but couldn’t quite spot. I really need to bring more friends to SB shows so we can figure them all out. They followed with a rocking You Got It then played The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down. I missed the next one, loved You’re Gonna Loose That Girl then missed the next one. They played a gorgeous version of Crazy and followed with Goodbye Yellow Brook Road. Appropriately enough, Somewhere Over The Rainbow was up next and they tossed in a couple of note of Hallelujah at the end. Old Man ended the first set on a high note.
The break was super quick and they came back with another song that I missed. I think they said it was a Beach Boys song. They played a fun version of Hey Hey My My then followed with a brilliant version of Paint It Black. Space Oddity kept up the intensity then they regaled us with God Only Knows. Love Me Tender was sweet then they brought back the edge with Creep. She’s Leaving Home sounded great and their version of Girl, You’ll Be A Woman Soon was fantastic. Surfer Girl had an elegant flow and Nights In White Satin was strong and bold. Starman was enchanting and I missed the song they closed with. I’ve always had a great time seeing them play and last night was another for the history books.
