The Daily Pravda @ T.T. The Bear’s Place 4.13.2013

The 2013 Rock ‘N’ Roll Rumble saved one of its best for last.* The Daily Pravda took the stage as the final participant of the preliminary round and walked off with a win for the night after an electrifying set. Outstanding.

* It’s almost as if Richard Bouchard’s hat knew something magical was going to happen.

Rumble Preliminary Night #6:
Jack Burton Vs. David Lo Pan
Ruby Rose Fox
The Daily Pravda (Winner)

The Walls @ The Middle East Downstairs 9.8.2012

People were excited about The Walls for a lot of reasons. For me it was one: guitarmony.

You see, Thin Lizzy came on the radio during my morning car ride into Central Square (to shoot some of the One Night Band promo photos). With “Cowboy Song” stuck in my head, I struck up a conversation with Adam Andersen about my hope that one of the bands about to be formed would try to pull off harmonized guitar lines during One Night Band 4. Lucky me, The Walls did just that. Now, I’m not trying to take credit for this joyous turn of events,* but this was my favorite part of their stellar set. It was either that or Aaron Perrino and Mariam Saleh’s awesome vocals. Or maybe Kyle Rasmussen’s kinetic drumming. Or the way Aaron, Adam, Mariam and the ever-versatile Rafi Sofer wove their stringed instruments into a textured sonic fabric.

Hmmm. It was one of those things, anyway.

* I totally am.
