May Gig Gauntlet Day 2

May Gig Gauntlet Day 2


Live from the Sugar Club last night, despite the venue’s stupid seated crowd and keyboard problems, Duchess Says still ripped up the stage nicely. Singer Annie-Claude likes to physically represent the twists and turns in the music and the melody. Impressive stuff.

Caught Yeasayer in Whelans afterwards. Rumblings that they were terrible live proved to be unfounded (at least last night). The songs were heavy on ‘vibe’ but still unique enough away from their recorded material. The venue was full for them and considering how much else is going on this week, I was very surprised. Plus – Didn’t the bass player look like a lumberjack with his boots, mustache, long hair, child’s hat and wife-beater?
