I had a great time seeing music last Wednesday at Radio Bean. I arrived a few minutes before the 10pm show and hung out and chatted a bit. It was not a long wait then the The Nancy Druids hit the stage with a shimmering rock haze. They settled in and rocked out a cool version of Sky. It was one of the first chilly evenings of the fall so December had a perfect feel and sounded so great. They rocked hard on Halo and Ann Mindell hammered out that massive drum part. They sang about the way things might have been then sang a luscious bucolic song about walking through a park and feeling fine. They played a brilliant version of By Design then rocked out the new song Salvation. Just Another Day had a nice stomp and some wicked feedback drenched lead guitar work. Sign had a nice bounce to it and was so catchy I found myself singing it for the the next day or two. They played another new song with a shimmering guitar over a rhythmic stomp and may have been about a bitter taste. Falling just made my heart soar then I Can’t Remember Who You Were rocked hard. Since You Left Me has a pleasant pop feel with plenty of rock muscle then they lit up the room with The Space Between. They had made a casual reference, earlier in the evening, to a well know rock song, but I thought they were just kidding. They brought up a guy named Lucas to sing a couple and as the band started the slow intro I realized that they were really going to do Sweet Emotion. They made it sound great as Sean, John, and Lucas surrounded the mic to sing the title part. They followed with Blitzkrieg Bop and it was great. I thought that was the end and Lucas left the stage but the Druids stayed for one more and played a cool version of The Ghost In You.

I said a couple of quick goodbyes, then took the cold and happy walk home. It’s so great to be able to walk such a short distance and see such great music.
