The Swell Season

How can you beat two+ hours of Glen Hansard, Markéta Irglová and members of the Frames? Simply a killer show.

Dawn Landes opened. She was quite good on her own right. If I had a little more funds on me I would have grabbed her CD. Definitely added her to my “buy” list.

But on to the main attraction. Wow. Wow. Wow. As I already said two plus hours of music. Glen solo, Glen and Markéta together, and them together with the Frames (which I did not realize were going to be there). The Van Morrison cover Glen performed was f@#$ing incredible.  We even had bonus songs from Colm Mac Con Iomaire (bought his CD) and the band’s tour manager (covering a Steve Earle tune). I thought maybe we would be treated by a solo song from Rob Bochnik (bought his CD too), but it didn’t happen (the only disappointment of the night).

The concert will be available on Played Last Night soon and I’ll definitely grab it. It would be even better if we could have the visuals, but I know that’s too much to ask. If you are wavering about going to this show, DON’T. F@#$ING GO!

Sorry for the crappy camera phone image, but its all I had available. More pictures are available over here.
