Mood Swings, our collaboration with Churchill’s Pub, took place a week ago on Thursday, June 6. The line up was significant, tracing the path of our website from our first profile interview to our last. The artists involved shined bright that night including: Master Feathers, Womanmay, The Man About Town and Dama Vicke. The idea is to turn Mood Swings into an ongoing series, featuring alumni we’ve interviewed or other folks who’ve inspired us.
I’ve been looking over the photos and reliving the special moments of the night. All the performers made heavy duty impacts in that old dive bar. Master Feathers started off the night by playing a wide array of rare gems, always smiling and grooving while building up the hype for the next act. Womanmay pulled out all the stops with an eclectic set, changing instruments every couple of songs. Starting off playing a toy piano and ending up with a 6 string guitar, a most entertaining lone artist variety show. The Man About Town (also known as my musical project) stepped to the stage providing the first live experience of the band as a three-piece and it was a smash. Dama Vicke closed out the night with a magical set, working every inch of the stage both sonically and physically. The entire band was on fire, keeping the sound as tight as in the studio. It was truly an impressive set! Thank you to everyone involved both as artists & as observers and of course thanks to Bob Parets, Ian Michael, and Rat Bastard!!!
