This is a prewritten blog post as I will be performing with il Troubadore and special guest, Taletha, at the the February 2009 edition of the Lafayette Music League HOOT Night (see previous post). The Lafayette Journal and Courier had a fun little write-up of the show yesterday:
One varied Hoot Night
SATURDAY: It’s a mix tape without the digging through that old shoe box to find that old Memorex cassette. The February edition of Hoot Night has downhome blues tinged rock, experimental acoustic music featuring accordion and upright bass, Middle Eastern folk on speed, and moody rock that would make Robert Smith from The Cure twirl around in circles. The Bailout Revival gets things started with the guitar work of Jason Gick and the strong vocal talents of Mollie Grieser. Three bands from Indianapolis will then make a name for themselves in downtown Lafayette. The Tonos Triad is just three guys that take elements of swing, ragtime and jazz and blend it into an original and memorable sound. Il Troubador[e] has played Lafayette more than a lot of Lafayette bands, and the duo of mandolinist Robert Bruce Scott and cellist Jon Silpayamanant have established a loyal following here. Percussionist Paul Radecki fills the sound out on tabla, bodhran and djembe. Red Light Driver will finish the evening out with a modern rock style that will make you miss your high school art classes.
When: 8:30 p.m. Saturday
Where: Knickerbocker Saloon, 113 N. Fifth St.
