group refers this part of their show as "four on the floor." I
moved closer to music and was able to enjoy the always-fantastic harmonies of
the band. The intimacy of the setting made me feel like I was listening
to them in a small room- perhaps someone's living room, like we were all a
party together. The all-acoustic set, using only a guitar and tambourine
that served as a drum, was inspiring. The lyrics were that much crisper,
the music that much cleaner.
It left me wondering what it
would take to do the whole show that way.
