We bill these charity concerts as a night full of “Great Beer. Great Music. Great Cause.” and last Friday night with the brilliant and wonderful My Pet Dragon from Brooklyn was spot on. Did we have Great beer? Check. Great music? Check. Great cause? Check.The stage was set (skids piled high) and soundcheck was done. We had a quick conversation. Should MPD split their setlist in half for a “beer break”? Well we are at a brewery. That made perfect sense. I am not one to argue with solid ideas. Thanks Todd for that brilliant idea.
We are ready for another charity concert at Captain Lawrence Brewery.
It’s a tough room for sound. It’s a brewery. Echo is an understatement but BNK Productions came through again. My Pet Dragon sounded great. Their straightforward indie rock blends gloriously within a brewery. Dare I say a perfect match? Then we add keyboardist Reena Shah’s interpretive dance moves in the mix. It’s a mesmerizing live show.
You know it’s a good show when the band comes back for part two and states “this could get interesting” referring to the great beer the band had been enjoying. Or as Todd exclaimed prior to starting “Moonshine” that this was “the perfect drinking song” and asked us to “Sing Along…or “Drink Along”. Ball Bustin’ Brown was a favorite of the night.
Part three is around the bend. You should come out and bring friends. The Captain Lawrence brewery a perfect (and very cool) place to watch these up and coming bands before they start playing places like The Capitol.
We have a great band out of Cleveland coming in to town on Oct 18th called The Modern Electric. If you’re a fan of piano rock and/or having a great time watching music played live then you’ll enjoy them. See you soon and thank you.
