kira kira was beautiful. started out the set playing mbira mic'd & attached to a box that rumbled when shaken. she would bow deeply after each song. toy xylophone & jump rope & some homemade looking instrument with knobs that she sang & breathed into & kissed. then switched to electric guitar & sang a lovely song in icelandic about two music geeks who fall in love talking about pedals & guitars & strings.
charalambides was electric guitar & vocals. very melancholy. the guitarist did some interesting things with feedback & pedals etc., but the vocals were too much for me.
some bad news- i may have sustained a little hearing damage from the dinosaur jr. show last week- my left ear hurt like hell as soon as the guitar got loud- never had any problem before.
red square only bled into the firehouse a little-
thanks for all the shows, greg!
