I had a great time seeing music last Monday at Nectar’s. I was off my normal work week and oddly had the day off. I did a couple of show write-ups and caught a late afternoon nap. I had to be up early on Tuesday but had the song Local Lore running through my head all day so I thought I could go out and at least catch their set.

The walk downtown was easy and lovely. I got in and settled a little after 9 and chatted with Ryan Cohen for a bit. Around 10 Savage Hen took the stage and rocked hard. With Jeremy Gartner ripping it up on drums and Matthew Bryan Hagen ripping it up on bass the band have an open and very melodic metal sound. Jaq Tothephuture almost screams and really sings and the songs have a lovely dark tone. They opened with Lore and I was elated. They followed with Alabama Swamp Skin and rocked it hard. Clever Girl and Voodoo Revenge are both quickly becoming favorites. They sailed us to The Edge on the next one and the space in the songs let the lyrics paint vivid pictures. Fuck The Bullshit was a powerhouse and then Jack told us why the show started a little late. His friend Pete passed away over the weekend and he came right from the funeral to play the show. He said Pete was more of a lion but they played their song The Wolf for him to close the set.

I really should have left but I was just short of my cutoff time so I got a drink and hung out for a few songs by Ghastly Sound. They had the same bass, drums singer lineup. They opened with some heavy Sabbath like riffs then played a song about Cape Buffalo. They had a huge sound and it was played at a stunning volume. They were really good but after the fourth song it was getting late and I headed out. I will have to check into them for real soon.

It was another fantastic night of music in Burlington.
