Cask Mouse bring joy into my life. Their music is heartfelt. Their performances are, too. They also happen to be fantastic people who went out of their way to make one 8 year-old boy very happy when they performed at the ARCH Gallery Holiday Bizarre, leaving the guy holding the camera more grateful than they could imagine.
Still buzzing from their show at The Sinclair last month, I excitedly made my way to TT’s to catch Cask Mouse. They were wonderful. Again. Even more wonderful was that the night was a benefit for Revolution of Hope organized by Ryan’s Smashing Life and Boston Tweet. Well done, everybody.
Here I am at my final show of 2013 and Cask Mouse may be playing the best set I’ve seen all year. They’re impossibly good right now. The Sinclair is teeming with energy, harmonies, hoots, hollers, twang and grit. It’s pure joy. I love this band. I love, love, love, LOVE this band.
I saw many of my favorite bands over the course of three nights at Radio during Bands For Babs and the club’s first anniversary show. It started me wondering which of my favorites I hadn’t seen in October. Then I noticed Cask Mouse on a bill the following weekend. Back to Radio I went…
I love Cask Mouse. I love their songs. I love their vocal arrangements. I love their attitude, energy and charisma. Most of all I love their enthusiasm. Their love for what they do makes it easy to get behind them. It doesn’t take long for the TT’s crowd to do just that.
