I had a great time seeing music Saturday night at Nectar’s. I worked until 5:30 got home and had a slow turn around then took the lovely walk downtown. Showtime was set at 7 and I arrived just before that but there was a bit of a delay as the band playing later were still sound checking. I hung out and chatted with Charlie Messing, and soon enough, it was time for the band to play.

Silver Bridget feature Matt Saraca on electric guitar, John Townsend on acoustic guitar & kick drum and Johnnie Day Durand on the musical saw & Glockenspiel. There are no vocals and they play all classic cover songs. Often, the saw becomes the voice and it’s fun to listen along and try and figure out the song. Some are instantly recognized, some take a while, and some remain mysteries. Thank goodness that Charlie was there or much of the beginning of the set would have been the latter. They opened with Here There And Everywhere and followed with I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry. They reached into the first of the above categories for Hey Hey My My. God Only Knows reached into the second. They took us on a Beatles ride with She’s Leaving Home, Nowhere Man, You’re Going To Lose That Girl, and capped it with And I Love Her. They played a couple of Stones songs. Paint It Black was heavy and fun and Wild Horses was a treat. Up next was the first song that neither Charlie or I could get but we were back on our game for Stand By Your Man. Girl, You’ll Be A Woman Soon was easy to spot and easy to enjoy then they baffled us again on the next one. (Per John Townsend “Karma Police (Radiohead) and In My Room (The Beach Boys), perhaps?“)  They went back to the Beatles for Follow The Sun then played a sweet version of I Will Always Love You. Radiohead’s Creep was just great and following it with Space Oddity was even better. You Got It was fun and so was The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down. They went back to the Beatles with If I Fell and closed the night with Yesterday. It was a lovely show that made my heart smile.

I didn’t stay long and enjoyed every step of the walk home. The fact that they could stump both Charlie and I twice clearly means that we need more friends to join us at Bridget shows. There will be more chances to see them in September and October.
