Live: The Swell Season

From the moment Glen Hansard stepped on stage at Meymandi Concert Hall, the audience was in his grip. The Swell Season captivated us all for over 2 hours…2 hours and 20 minutes to be exact. It started with Glen stepping onto the front edge of the stage to loud applause, but once he began to sing, it became perfectly silent except for the sound of his voice and guitar. Not a rustle or whisper. Everyone was transfixed by him and the music. Gorgeous.

The Old Ceremony

The Old Ceremony out of Chapel Hill NC, is one of the more unique bands I’ve run across in some time. It’s fronted by songwriter Django Haskins and this band of troubadours use guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, violin, cello, and vibraphones to pound out polished lush music. They mix elements of jazz and rock, a little blues seem thrown in there at times, as well as a hint of folk.

Live: British Sea Power

British Sea Power graced Cats Cradle Tuesday night (May 6) to an eager crowd of fans. The first hint that this would be different than every other show at the Cradle is the shrubbery. Greenery surrounding mic stands, amps, drums. It’s the closest the Cradle has ever been to a park. This band, on this night, was…well…fun. They have a noisy and brash rock sound combined with a bit of pop.

Live: Man Man

Man man played Cats Cradle (Carrboro NC) Sunday, May 4 and set the place on fire with their wild carnival-esque show. Their tight percussion, hyperactive energy, and crisp songs were met with equal energy from a crowd that was in constant motion, jumping, dancing, yelling, singing, arms waving, feet moving. A Man Man concert isn’t just a music show, it’s an extravaganza, and full body experience. It’s what a live show is all about and the reason why we didn’t sit home and just listen to a CD instead.
