Wren Kitz

I had a great time seeing music last Saturday at The Monkey House. I got out of work, did a fairly quick turnaround then took the slow icy walk to Winooski.

I walked in right at showtime and Wren Kitz were on and easing their way into a song. I grabbed a drink and walked to the front and let the heavy psychedelic music wash over me. They started with a familiar song abut a Master Of The Universe that made me smile. I thought they might jam out a bit but they slid into another of their more poppy songs. It was fun, then they kept up the theme with a sweet version of Sky Of Words. At the end they let it drift off into an intense jam. Maybe it was the news I had watched earlier, but you know that point when the Falcon rocket has brought you into space and the Dragon capsule has separated it and is flying steadily towards the space station? It sounded like what I imagine that would sound like. Eventually, it solidified into Georgie and they rocked that cool song to a lovely conclusion to cap the night. They are always amazing.

Up next Danny & The Parts took the stage as a trio. They began their popish countryish rockish set with the poignant Maybe There’s A War then rocked out a cool version of Drifting. They sang a song about people that you know then a couple more that I did not know but really liked. They kicked out a fun rocker that caught the room then played a cover with a blues rock stomp. Why You Putting Down That Phone sounded nice then they had a big rock finish on a song about how you want me back home. It was a really fun set.

After a short break Omoo Omoo began to play. The instrumental trio began with a dreamy slow rock jam that took a nice prog turn. It became slow and shiny for a while then rocked a bit a the end. Their sound brought to mind King Crimson and The Dixie Dregs, and they definitely had some old Rush influence running throughout. All of the songs were long jams. Some were more slow and mellow and some rocked super hard. They played for an hour or so and ended with a breezy proggy song that was quite pleasant. It was a really nice set.

I hung out for a little bit then took the long icy walk home. It was a lot of effort, but so worth it.
