I had a great time seeing music last night at Radio Bean. I got out of work a little early on a snowy day after the time change, and started catching up on show write-ups. I finished the previous night’s story a little after nine, grabbed a quick bite to eat and was out the door at 9:45.

I made good time and walked in as the church bells rang 10. I got in and settled and chatted with Kirk and Barbara from Happy Spangler, thanks for the drink, and then it was showtime.

I found a comfortable place to stand and The Nancy Druids began to shimmer the universe with their beautiful rock sound. They opened with the song about how the sky is all around us now then lit into December. By the end, Sean’s guitar rippled with rock glory. Just Another Day started with a heavy rock stomp lead by John’s bass and Ann Mindell‘s drums. It went through a couple of Beatlesque choruses then Sean unleashed a killer guitar solo at the end. Up next was the sweet rock pop of Vondlepark (sp??). There is something about that song that always makes me float to a happy place and the version they played last night is still with me now. They kicked up the volume for the heavy rocking I Can’t Remember Who You Were and I reveled in Ann’s drumming. By Design is super catchy and rocks hard and was nothing but joy. We found Salvation all around then experienced a few Bitter Days. Sign had a nice bounce to it and is still delightfully stuck in my head, then they brought the pace to full rock glory for Halo. Again, Ann’s bombastic drumming just puts that song over the top. Often, they will toss in a fun cover at the end but last night the opening rock groove of The Space Between proved otherwise. It’s one of those songs that builds and builds and ends in a hail of drenched feedback and leaves you with that happy dazzled feeling. I loved every moment of the show.

I hung out and chatted with John for a bit then took the lovely walk home
