As soon as we walked into the station and saw our guests rehearsing in the “big room”, I knew we were in for a rock n roll treat.
I’d seen Lenny and Mike play together before at the White Eagle, and got really into their guitar interplay. They were shockingly good tonight, adding some politics and some humor into the mix as well.
Here’s how the night went:
Sufjan Stevens – Casimir Pulaski Day – Illinoise (Asthmatic Kitty)
Keren Ann – L’ Onde AmÃ¨re – Nolita (Blue Note)
Neil Finn – Turn And Run – One Nil (EMI)
Kristin Hersh – A Loon – Hips And Makers (Sire)
Lenny Rancher with Mike Wilcox:
Yann Tiersen & Shannon Wright – Dragonfly – Yann Tiersen & Shannon Wright (Ici d’Ailleurs)
John Vanderslice – You Were My Fiji – Time Travel Is Lonely (Barsuk)
Cat Power – Nude As The News – What Would The Community Think (Matador)
