Miku Daza and Faun Fables at Light Club Lamp Shop July 10, 2018   Leave a comment

I had a great time seeing music at Light Club Lamp Shop. It was one of those 8 hour work days where everything was far more needlessly complicated that it should have been. I soldiered through and brought a reasonable solution to most problems, then zipped home and settled.

I didn’t settle for long since I knew Miku Daza were going to throw some fiery music into the world. I took the walk downtown and caught a furious pace and sailed into the Lamp Shop just before showtime. They were still setting up so I chatted with a couple of cool people as I settled in.

Miku hit the stage hard and fast with their blend of klezmer/ska/punk/glam or whatever fury they bring us into. Parasite rocked and Flaca Daza rocked even harder. They took more of a punk turn on the next one then sang about paparazzi. We got off on a new one then they sang about how we sing and we dance. We Panicked on the next one then went to the funeral. They played a song with a gypsy vibe and a hip hop lyric which makes it what, gyp-hop? They closed the set with Frosty Pink Skies and the crowd was elated.

The set break took a bit but Mycelium MC helped time go by with a couple of poems, and audience participation for car and bike sounds. I think he spoke about love and living.

Soon after, Faun Fables graced the stage. The lovely and powerful duo mixed up drums, acoustic guitar, electric 12 sting guitar, bass and wove a beautifully powerful spell. They sang about sleepwalking then followed it with a rocking Polish song about this youth of ours. They took us on a journey to a country house then sang about relationships that aren’t important. I think that one was called Roadkill. They featured a mournful flute on the next one then played a song with a classic, subtly powerful, Bay area sound. They sang a song about birthdays that I think was called Madmen And Dogs, then did their best to break my heart. The song about a mother and a piano stirred feelings that had been running though me all day. You’ve got to love it when an artist just cuts to the heart of the power and delicacy of life. The Lemmy reference in the intro to the one about moving backwards in time was joyous. They took us to the witch’s garden then ended with something that might have been about a burning sun. Their set was gentle and powerful and beautiful and fun and evoked a strong response from the crowd.

I hung out and chatted for a bit then took the lovely walk home. I love how much fantastic music arrives in our town.

I’ve been listening to their album The Uncanny Doom Service a lot lately and that song just keeps jumping out. Great rocker from Kelly that sounds louder than last week.

Troy Millette, Matt The Gnat & The Gators, and Miku Daza at Nectar’s March 7, 2018   Leave a comment

I had a great time seeing music last Wednesday at Nectar’s. I did lots of errands during the day, like meeting with the lawyer and mom’s tax guy, then had a nice visit with her. I caught a long nap, was up and running around 8, then took the lovely walk downtown.

I only caught a couple of songs by Troy Millette. He played a song called Brothers from an upcoming EP that sounded pretty nice. He said he was learning a new cover for each Wednesday show in March. He played a sweet version of Let It Be and dropped it into Round Here. He has a great stage personality and a pleasant voice. I’ll have to catch a full show soon.

Up next, Matt the Gnat and the Gators took the stage and regaled us with fun creepy stories. Matthew Bryan Hagen was joined by Miss Saxy (Caroline Marie) and Todd Gevry (the hog) on snare. They began the night with a story about an assassin who collects body parts as payment and has The Snake Doctor add them to his gumbo. They sang about how There’s A Loss In Finding Innocence. They sang a song about a paranoid man who thinks the moon is a woman who is out to get him on Lady Moon. They told us a story of a man who stole someones jacket then fell through ice and the jacket buoyantly saved his life. He looked at the name in the jacket and spent much time Looking For Forgetful Louis Brown. They sang about a man who lives on the sidewalk and reaches for your feet as you walk by on Dalton Delaney. They sang about a Monster’s Holiday and the familiar tale of an astronaut about to fall back to Earth on A Cut In The Night Sky. They asked if maybe the Paper Doll is looking to cut you then told the story of a man in prison who survives by getting people addicted to his uncle’s cookies. When the supply runs dry he breaks out to find his uncle who’s name is Jesus. I think the song was called Sweet Jesus. They told us about the Frozen Winning Streak Of A Gambler and closed the night with a ditty about how I Forgot My Baby At The Reunion Dance. Their stark dark sound was enthralling and I was so happy to finally catch a full show.

Miku Daza came up next and blew the doors off the place. They had a gypsy punk ska rock sound and made you want to dance hard. They sang in English and in Spanish. They played a few slower songs but most of the show was super high energy. They exuded joy. I didn’t catch a lot of detail in my notes but I loved every minute of the 16 song set. I definitely need to get to know their music better.

After the set I said a few goodbyes then took the lovely walk home.
