Quiltro and Kali Ma And The Garland Of Arms at The Monkey House April 13, 2019   Leave a comment



I had a great time seeing music April 13th at The Monkey House. I’m so far behind.

I had a nice day at work and when I got home there was a message on Facebook from Faith Kelly reminding me to check out one of her new favorite bands. Who am I to stand in the way of such enthusiasm? I took the lovely long walk to Winooski, got settled, and soon it was time for openers Quiltro to take the stage. They lit in with a trancey Floyd vibe and added a soundscaping guitar. The second of their instrumental songs had more keys and a triumphant sound and I was in a happy place. The next song really lit me up and I’m pretty sure it was a cover of When You’re In from Obscured By Clouds. I was beaming. The rest of the eight song set was like a sea of sound and I enjoyed the swim. They closed with a cool smooth rocker and I really need to get to know them more.

The set break was reasonable then Kali Ma and the Garland of Arms – KMGA took the stage. They opened with a cool song and followed with one that was dropped from the stars prog. I was in a happy place. I had a hard time really getting my head around the songs so I just rocked back and forth a bit and let the wave of sound move me around. The sound was luscious and joyous and I just loved it. The fourth song of the set had a towering lead guitar part that lit me up, but it was the way the band flowed together that made me love them. They capped the 9 song set with a huge rocker and I was in a happy place. I hung out and chatted a bit and bought their CD then took the lovely walk home. Faith was so right.
