Rocking the Playhouse, 11-28-2007
Thanks to all the folks and fans who came out to support the first of many shows that your teacher on the radio and WTTU will be booking and promoting at the Backdoor Playhouse (and other venues at Tech or around town).
This first successful gig combined a wide range of musical content in the two featured acts. We began with Simply Put, who offered an incredibly lively set that had people dancing in their seats and in the aisles. This fearless four-piece plays an ineffable fusion, with songs as shining, funky psalms of reality, rooted in an original style and sound, traversing emotional geographies and transcending musical genres.
To complete the evening, we welcomed Cabin who traveled from Louisville, Kentucky, to offer us an hour of honest, epic, emotional Indy rock. From Sarah's fiddle and Noah's vocals to both of them trading keyboard duties, backed byBilly's and Dave's blistering rhythm section, the melodic mood of an amazing Wednesday was complete.
