I had a great time seeing music last Friday at Light Club Lamp Shop. It’s getting to the busy time of year. I’m working longer and later hours and getting out to see music has been a challenge. This show was set to go from 7:30 to 8:30, and even though I had to be at work a little before 8am on Saturday, the timing was perfect.

I was a little slow to get out the door, but I found a quick walking pace, and entered the Lamp shop just as the band were about to start. I got settled in as the acousticish The Nancy Druids opened with Sky. Sean played acoustic guitar but John was on electric bass and Ann Mindell drove the songs with her drums. They followed with a double slice of pop heaven with Vondle Park and Sign and I was in a very happy place. Sean and Ann’s daughter Ariel joined them on cello for a very appropriate December and a cool version of By Design. The cello added a nice flow as they rocked out The Space Between. Ariel was going to leave but the audience wanted more. She played a little Bach (I think that’s what John said it was) that made the audience smile. She really left after that and the trio rocked out Salvation. They tossed in a cover of Year Of The Cat, and while Sean’s voice was a little different from Al’s, his inflections were almost exact. It was beautiful and amazing. After that, Sean put down the acoustic and picked up an electric guitar. I was in a happy place as they rocked out Just Another Day. They still played a little quieter than usual but by the time they got into the middle of I Can’t Remember Who You Were they were close to full speed. They followed with a cool version of Bitter Days then ramped up to full speed for a blistering Halo. Oh, that did my heart a world of good.

After the show I hung out and chatted with Molly King and Loren for a bit, then took the lovely walk home. I was able to get a little rest before Saturday’s 8-6:30 shift that began my work week. It’s going to be a rough two weeks, but after that, I should be back in the swing of things.
