I’ve seen a lot of great shows at TT’s over the years. This here Friday night of the club’s 40th Anniversary week has been another to remember. What a ridiculous lineup. Who could possibly close out a night that has already seen killer sets by The Gravel Pit, Sidewalk Driver, The Field Effect, Emergency Music, Corin Ashley and Kenny Chambers? What’s that? They’ve got The Sheila Divine coming up next? You can’t be serious. Really? Good golly. I just. This is. I… uh… yeah. Amazing.
Surprise! Special Guest! What kind of celebration would it be without Sidewalk Driver? Probably one with fewer songs about awesome things and less confetti. Who would want that? Not Tough Teddy.
Here are some photographs of The Field Effect calmly and quietly playing their music songs for a subdued crowd during TT’s 40th Anniversary week.
It’s been a couple of years since Emergency Music last played. You’d never know it from their set for TT’s 40th Anniversary. Their hooks and swagger were in fine form.
Can Corin Ashley write a great pop song? Yes, he can. He’s written quite a few of them. Sometimes he plays shows with a killer band (like this one to celebrate TT’s 40th Anniversary) where you find yourself smiling ear to ear admiring his ability to entertain you with those songs.
Kenny Chambers And The High Bombs were the spark plug of the rock ‘n’ roll steamroller that was Night #6 of TT’s 40th Anniversary week. They kicked off a gargantuan night of music with their high energy set.
Watching Jenny Dee & The Deelinquents perform makes me happy. There’s a lot of joy in their music, be it the girl group R&B that launched the band or their more recent adventures in electro-symphonic pop. It all sounds right. It all sounds good. They closed out the Thursday night of TT’s 40th Anniversary week.
Thalia Zedek and her band played a primal and emotional set at the TT’s 40th Anniversary celebration.
Ruby Rose Fox lent her soulful voice to the TT’s 40th Anniversary celebration. The earth moves when she sings.
