I had a great time seeing music last Wednesday. I woke up and and spent the day glowing from the Yes show the night before. I met up with Mary Wolcott around 6:30 and we headed over to Robot Dog Studio. Ryan Cohen spent some time getting the sound right then I began my interview with Cave Bees that I played the next day on my local music radio show on WBKM. They played four blistering songs. Sister Blue, Queen City, I Don’t Need This Anymore, and Juliet are all powerful and newish songs and we chatted about life in between. After that was wrapped up the band headed out and Mary, Ryan and I chatted for a bit. Mary and I then headed out and went downtown.

We arrived at Red Square just as gneiss ended a set so we got drinks then chatted with the band. It was s short break then they got up to play. Naomi Galimidi and Johnny Meli alternated singing the songs as Jesse Cowan and Jacob Blodgett locked in the rhythm. They began with the gorgeous Endless Sunkissed Lover and several dancers filled the spot in front of the stage. They looked like they knew what they were doing and looked like they were having fun as they danced all the way through the set. The band followed with a sultry song called Too Much that featured some rocking Johnny guitar. They played a song about slowing life down to single frame that had some extra sweet bass work. They sang about how we will all be gone in time and how we will all be one in time, and Naomi’s piano was beautiful. They sang about shoes in a wet basement which most any Vermonter would understand. They played a song called Pocket about the space between being asleep and awake and Johnny rocked the end. They played a song about comfort while wondering why words always miss and closed the set with a song about how you’ve gotta see it if you want to know the truth.

After that we headed out and Mary dropped me off then headed home. It was another lovely day.
