Awesome. Can't wait to pick one of these up at The Earl.
The show at 'Drew's House' in Ringwood, NJ was amazing last night. It was a house show, so literally in Drew's living room. Couldn't have been more than 100 people there, if that, and it was packed. The new stuff comes across much better to me live. He played a few newer songs that were as good or better as whats on the album (Jerimiahs Blues, Paul & Billy (i think).
Several people have asked me offline about a pre-game meet-up before the DC show. I sadly am double-booked that night and will be showing up just in time for craig's set most likely. But I have a multitude of recommendations. If you just want a quick drink and some tolerable pubfare, the rockandrollhotel bar itself has mostly tolerable pubfare and is easy! and has a lovely roofdeck if the weather is nice. i have pointed several people to sticky rice dc nearby for sushi, pan asian fare, and tater tots. If there does end up being a big group of people, biergarten haus (a german-style biergarten) can accomodate big groups pretty easily. my personal favorite nearby food option is dangerously delicious pies. nomnom. pie.
Saw the Maxwell's show last night which was good as expected.
He played a new song that I'm pretty sure was titled "Save Me Jesus" that I don't recall anyone mentioning here before. It could be Jesus Save Me, the chorus flips the words around a few times. Upbeat song in tempo at least.
Save Me Jesus is a Bobby Charles cover. Maxwell's was a lot of fun - Some Guns is a great backing band, and they really give a kick to some of the more low-key songs on the album (thinking of Balcony in particular). Loved the extended stories and banter between songs. Pretty sure I saw Tad hanging out in the back; someone said they spotted Bobby too. Highly recommend catching a show on this tour if you can, even if you don't love CHFE.
