Perspectives of Five Women

Bluegrass and Bluebloods

on November 17, 2010

Today, I’m not feeling particularly witty, or even very smart.  So, I apologize in advance if that’s why you’re reading.  I think it has something to do with the weather, which is drizzly and has been for the past two days, and something to do with getting over a cold, and something to do with the time of year, and something else to do with a general ennui. 

But I did go to an amazing concert last week.  The headliner was Mumford and Sons, an incredible band that I was introduced to when my sister and her roommate took me to their show in Boston in May.  That show was good, but not great.  I came away from it really liking Mumford, but disappointed by the rest of the experience.  The show was at the famous (for reasons unknown) Middle East club, and it started late, there were like two hours between the opening act and Mumford.  And the opening band was a huge disappointment.  Their lyrics were muffled because the lead singer was swallowing the microphone and the volume was turned up way too high. 

This week, it was an entirely different experience.  The headliners were amazing, as expected, but what I hadn’t expected was that the two opening acts, King Charles and Cadillac Sky, would be equally good.  All in all it was three and half hours of great music, played by bands who obviously enjoyed playing together, and with the other bands on the tour. 

For the encore, all three came out and played together.  Here’s a video of the show they all did in Atlanta a few weeks ago.  This is the song they played as an encore in Boston as well.  Enjoy!
