I had a great time seeing music at Light Club Lamp Shop. It was one of those 8 hour work days where everything was far more needlessly complicated that it should have been. I soldiered through and brought a reasonable solution to most problems, then zipped home and settled.

I didn’t settle for long since I knew Miku Daza were going to throw some fiery music into the world. I took the walk downtown and caught a furious pace and sailed into the Lamp Shop just before showtime. They were still setting up so I chatted with a couple of cool people as I settled in.

Miku hit the stage hard and fast with their blend of klezmer/ska/punk/glam or whatever fury they bring us into. Parasite rocked and Flaca Daza rocked even harder. They took more of a punk turn on the next one then sang about paparazzi. We got off on a new one then they sang about how we sing and we dance. We Panicked on the next one then went to the funeral. They played a song with a gypsy vibe and a hip hop lyric which makes it what, gyp-hop? They closed the set with Frosty Pink Skies and the crowd was elated.

The set break took a bit but Mycelium MC helped time go by with a couple of poems, and audience participation for car and bike sounds. I think he spoke about love and living.

Soon after, Faun Fables graced the stage. The lovely and powerful duo mixed up drums, acoustic guitar, electric 12 sting guitar, bass and wove a beautifully powerful spell. They sang about sleepwalking then followed it with a rocking Polish song about this youth of ours. They took us on a journey to a country house then sang about relationships that aren’t important. I think that one was called Roadkill. They featured a mournful flute on the next one then played a song with a classic, subtly powerful, Bay area sound. They sang a song about birthdays that I think was called Madmen And Dogs, then did their best to break my heart. The song about a mother and a piano stirred feelings that had been running though me all day. You’ve got to love it when an artist just cuts to the heart of the power and delicacy of life. The Lemmy reference in the intro to the one about moving backwards in time was joyous. They took us to the witch’s garden then ended with something that might have been about a burning sun. Their set was gentle and powerful and beautiful and fun and evoked a strong response from the crowd.

I hung out and chatted for a bit then took the lovely walk home. I love how much fantastic music arrives in our town.
