Good things happen when members of Aloud and OldJack team up to benefit the DCF Kids Fund. Lemon Merchant Allstars were just plain wonderful, ripping through their bands’ backlogs and playing music for the joy of it.
Also, more photos of Dan Nicklin in a Santa Hat.
The first super group of the night, Goddamn Glenn And His Red Coffee Cup Ensemble did a mix of holiday tunes and I-forgot-how-much-I-like-this-song covers at Anngelle Wood’s 4th annual Spectacular Gift Drive for DCF Kids Fund. Oh, and another photo of Dan Nicklin in a Santa hat.
Eric Salt & The Electric City lit up the Q Division Holiday Party. See what I did there? Oh, and another photo of Dan Nicklin in a Santa hat.
OldJack were up to their old tricks at the Q Division Holiday Party. They were dishing out some good old fashioned rock ‘n’ soul.
Listening to Nate Leavitt and his band puts a smile on my face and a tear in my beer. Perfect for the Q Division Holiday Party.
Eric Salt & The Electric City closed out a night of great songs performed by fantastic musicians at a wonderful club. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. We’re lucky to have people like this in our town.
OldJack had a steady burn going at The Lizard, rolling through a rock solid set of soul-tinged tunes. It felt good to settle into their sound again.
Listening to Nate Leavitt, Dan Nicklin and Magen Tracy sing in three part harmony on a stripped-down version of “Taking The Long Way Home” is everything that’s right in the world. The rest of the set was pretty darn good, too.
Here are four things The Rationales had me thinking about after their recent set at Cuisine en Locale:
- Just because everyone always says it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t say it more: The Rationales have some fantastic songs.
- Dave Mirabella commenting that bandmate Chad Raleigh dressed as Han Solo AND Chewbacca was the best of the many Star Wars references in the ballroom that evening.
- The Rationales covered a Wilco song for the first time!* Picking my favorite, “I’m Always In Love,” was a wise decision.
- Speaking of decisions, sometimes bad ones are good ones. Just look at the “Drunk!” crowd-participation backing vocals encouraged on “Drunk All The Time.” Terrible decision. Wonderful outcome.
Make Music Harvard Square can usually be counted on for two things: great weather and great music. Mother Nature provided the first. Nate Leavitt Band provided the second.
