I had a great time seeing music last Saturday at Light Club Lamp Shop. It was a long hectic work day, but I had a little time at home before taking the lovely walk downtown. I got in and settled and chatted with cool people like Steph Pappas and Loren Tindall and Molly King. Soon, it was showtime.

When The Nancy Druids play the Lamp Shop it’s usually more of an acoustic show and that night was no different. While I love their full rock fury, it’s nice to hear slightly quieter versions of their lovely songs now and then. They opened with the breezy Vondelpark (sp??) that blew every care and concern right out of my mind. Just Another Day followed with a nice rock stomp and a stunning upper middle fretboard solo from Sean on his acoustic guitar. Sign had a fun bounce and made me smile. John had been playing the Rickenbacker for the first three but switched to bouzouki as Ann Mindell and Sean’s daughter Ariel joined them on cello. They played a lovely version of Sky and followed with a shimmering version of December. By Design rocked nicely in the acoustic format then they pulled out a fun cover of The Ghost In You. Ariel stuck around for one more and the band let loose a lovely version of The Space Between. They returned to trio format, with John on bass, and they showed us that Salvation was all around. They kicked it up a bit for a rocking Remember Who You Were then returned to the shimmer for Disappear. They rocked out Bitter Days then were going to end with a rocking Halo, but the audience wanted more. They closed the night with Give A Little Bit and we were happy. I hung out and chatted for a bit then took the lovely walk home. It was another great night of music in our town.
