Sondre Lerche at The Earl

February 20th, 2010 | 09:41

A while back, we went to dinner at Woodfire Grill, before going to see Sondre Lerche at the Earl. Kathleen had gotten reservations back in December for me for Christmas, and this was the earliest date that was available! Also, this was the show that we both bought each other tickets to for Christmas.

Camera Obscura

Kathleen and I saw Camera Obscura at the Variety Playhouse Friday night. It was supposed to have been like back in June, but there was a family emergency or such in the band and the had to postpone. But they came back, and we got to see a good show.

Blitzen Trapper

We saw Blitzen Trapper at The Earl last Thursday night. Pretty good.

Wye Oak opened and they were pretty good. I wish I had known more of their stuff before we went.

Blind Pilot

We saw The Low Anthem and Blind Pilot at The Earl last Sunday. Blind Pilot was really good. They have a lot of atypical instrumentation (Upright bass, electric vibraphone, etc). It comes together to make some quite pretty music.

Low Anthem was ok, I may have liked it more if I hadn’t been so tired (most of their stuff was slow).

I don’t know how we do it, but no matter how late we show up, we always end up right at the stage at the Earl.

The Walkmen

We went to see The Walkmen again at the Variety Playhouse with Brent a while ago (Sept 25).  The opening band wasn’t too good. But The Walkmen were great as always
