I’ve seen Letters To Cleo a bunch of times. In college it seemed like every time my friend Brian came to visit they’d be playing one of the Providence clubs. He came to visit a lot. We saw some fun shows. None sounded as good as the other night when Letters To Cleo played Wholesale Meats and Fish in its entirety (and then some). Very nice.
OK, so is this technically a Letters To Cleo reunion? I dunno, but when you’ve got this many of the band’s members on The Paradise stage for Hot Stove Cool Music sounding this good, it’s easy to let yourself think so. Let’s go with it. After all, it’s for a good cause.
In addition to hosting the Hot Stove Cool Music show to raise money for The Foundation To Be Named Later, Mike O’Malley took a turn with the house band to sing “Glad And Sorry.” Oh, you can also find photos of Mr. O’Malley in these posts. Go take a look. You’ve earned it.
Jen Trynin took the stage at Hot Stove Cool Music to perform a killer rendition of “Better Than Nothing.” The song sounded better than ever, delivering the first of many ’90s flashback frenzies the night would provide.
