Happy Monday morning to all of you! This morning’s videos are inspired by the concert R and I got to attend this past Saturday.
Saturday was a wonderful day all around, actually. We spent a good chunk of it in one of our favorite towns (Brattleboro) with two of our favorite people, Steph from Visible and Real and her partner, Sarah, who were visiting New England on official business. They were able to take time out of their busy weekend to meet up with us, and we had a great time. Awesome food and awesome conversation were had.
After we all parted, R and I headed to another of our favorite towns (Northampton) to window-shop, eat more delicious food (this time with tasty beer), and see one of our favorite bands at the Calvin Theatre: the Carolina Chocolate Drops.
(lots of favorites this weekend!)
Luckily for us, the opening band was also a group we were looking forward to see, and David Wax Museum did not disappoint. They played a wonderful, albeit too short, set. CCD followed with an even better one (although, also too short). (We could stayed there all night, to be honest.)
On to the videos. Yes, you get two today! The first is from David Wax Museum, a tune they did on Saturday called “Harder Before It Gets Easier” from their album Shutter and String.
For Carolina Chocolate Drops, I’m going with a song that didn’t make it into Saturday’s set. This is one of R’s favorites: “Cornbread and Butterbeans” from Genuine Negro Jig.
