Total, only slightly terrifying joy – to jump in playing with The Brevity Thing with my new-ish tune “O Mother” at Radio Bean in Burlington last night. They are a very fun group to watch (and be with) onstage; even though they don’t talk to the audience too much, you feel wonderfully included just because they are having such a relaxed, great time. No set lists allowed, so I hear. I like how relaxed, loose but tight their sound is. Dave Ball’s song “Rock, Paper, Scissors” was crazy and good. I have to hear that one again.
