After what has seemed like a lifetime, Brandi has finally played at home again…..
The show was billed as “Late Morning Lullaby”, and took place at a small club here in Seattle. The Tractor Tavern is actually the first place I saw Brandi…. My best friend and I attended a Tegan & Sara show, and her and Tim were the opening act. Jeez….this was…..5 years ago?? maybe even longer. I think pretty much every friend I ever made was in the house that night (which aint too many). Seriously….old bosses, friends family, storm buddies… it was almost like having a birthday party (which is soon).
Despite the heat, the show was a BLAST. Seeing her on that stage again was surreal…. and it was so GOOD to see her again, after such a long absence. I would have preferred to hear more new songs… but I aint complaining. One of the highlights of the night was watching Fighting Machinists be the opening act (Tim and Phils early band), and seeing Brandi jump up and down on the side of the stage like a squealing 16 yr old 🙂
Brandi came out after the show, and I got a chance to thank her for doing this show. Its seriously awesome that she can play these huge places in Seattle, but still comes back to these small clubs and does a show just for the fans. She was excited to play there as we were…..
I didnt really get that many good photos (it was very low light and red). Here is a vid of one of the new songs.
I’m working on a redesign for the site (which will hopefully be launched at SOME point!)…. so I’m focusing on that, rather than trying to keep up with updating this site as well.
