I got up early to print out a bunch of covers and traycards for super advance Saxon Shore cd-r releases. I’m off to a bbq at Nathan and Norma’s house in a bit with Dave and Nicole.
Last night, the Woven Hand/Brother Danielson show was epic. I don’t use that lightly. I have never seen Daniel in such a funny mood during a show. He didn’t play in his tree, but appeared in a suit as a door to door salesman hawking his Great Comfort goods in between songs. He played a few new songs in what was one of the best performances I’d seen him give in a while, maybe because it was so different. Woven Hand was David on stringed instruments and Ordy on drums and the set went through a long history of both Woven Hand and 16 Horsepower songs. For the encore, Daniel joined on stage to play some fierce metal bass parts in what was a super rocking ending. My friend Scott sat next to me and we were reminiscing to the first time we’d seen 16 Horsepower in like 1995 or 1996 at J.C. Dobbs and how mesmerizing the whole set was back then. By the way, the band found some copies of the first LP pressing, so if you catch them in Pittsburgh or Cleveland, you’re in luck. Otherwise, it’s the second edition.
Happy birthday, Jane.
