The Bright Light Social Hour -
I walked into the show during the first song that The Bright Light Social Hour was performing and I was already impressed. I heard about this group about a year ago and have been craving to see them perform ever since. Listening to their albums and hearing their recorded music doesn’t do justice for what I experienced at their live show.
A band performing on an Tuesday night in Minneapolis, MN made it seem like it was a Saturday night in New York. They stayed tight, gave the solos at the right times and rolled from song-to-song as if they have been doing this for years.
Coming from performing at SXSW, I could see how a band might have been a little disappointed with the Tuesday night turn out at The Fine Line, but they didn’t show that at all. The southern sound combined with the rock beats and jam band solos made this show one that I will remember for some time to come. A band that can have this much fun and provide such solid music, vocally ranging and musically talented to play almost any genera of music.
I cannot wait until their next time through the Twin Cities because trust me, I’ll be there.
