I went to Kelli Scarr's show at Muddy Waters not knowing what to expect and not knowing a single song of hers. What I heard was a beautiful set, a sort of cross between Sia and the Cowboy Junkies.
This was on 4 November, First Thursday, and also related to the New Noise festival/conference. Scarr and her group was the last of four bands performing that night at Muddy and it went on past midnight. In fact, I don't think she even went on until after midnight. And I had work the next morning. But we were so entranced by the music that time did not matter. I'm guessing the musicians felt the same way - it seemed they played with their eyes closed.
Pity the cafe was sparely populated. But that kind of stuff happens on school nights.
