Monday Night Wrap-up: June 18, 2012

Posted on: June 19th, 2012 by Somer

It never fails…once the open stage moves into the wee hours of Tuesday morning, something interesting always happens. A last-minute visit from Jim Flynn and his friend Stoker, Albert Goold’s bizarre singalong (dickassballsballasassdick!). And then of course there was Milk Cup. The chaos that they unleashed halfway through the evening–complete with amp, drums, butt crack, hot wax, ketchup and feedback–would have been enough. The real treat was their drummer, Jamie, getting onstage well after midnight to play a few of his own great, antifolk-inspired songs.

Monday Night Wrap-up: June 4, 2012

Posted on: June 5th, 2012 by Somer

An amazing night. Just look at the first 20 or so performers. It ended relatively early (I took the stage a bit after 1am), but the level of talent of the list tonight was something else. Excellent comedians tonight, including Rachel Laitman’s kid brother, who told a bunch of hilarious one-liners and got the gig easily. A few talented individuals didn’t make it to their slot (Brook, Prewar, Dots), but honestly, if they had I might have exploded. At least with Dots Will Echo I got something to take home with me (below). VERY excited about this CD. I’ll play it first thing tomorrow.
