On ideas

A Mass of Nothing

If you have not had the opportunity to witness the joy that is Kutapira, I highly recommend you see them. I don’t know if you can find tour dates or show times (their site seems quite vague) but, I must say, I was floored by their performance on Granville Street yesterday.

I had the privilege of seeing Anais Mitchell with her amazing band last night at the Railway Club. Once again, I was in shock at the turnout and I really wish more people would come and see these incredibly talented musicians. Anais headlined with her band mates each taking solo efforts prior to her performance. As Hadestown is high on the list for Album of the Year for me, it was great to see her pull off the material live.

I have not been that impressed with a guitar player in a long time. Jefferson Hamer has got to be one the best guitar players I have seen in years.  Much like Kutapira, he floored me with his solo performance and his impeccable twang. His rendition of Gram ParsonsSin City was jaw dropping. On top of all that, he is a really nice guy.
