Recording: Retired

Artist: Retired

Song: unknown*

Recorded at Owl's Club, July 21, 2016.

Retired - unknown

Scouted out by some of the same crew that had put together the Four Corners gigs, this night took the action out of the typical bar setting and into the Legion Hall. As the crowd arrived, the room got close and humid, then sauna-like. One got the impression this was a different vibe than the weekly euchre tournament. (Though maybe those get intense, too.) There was a faint mustiness in the air that reminded me of the specific smell of an old canvas tent my family had when I was young — a hot, sticky summer smell. This was actually more or less a totally appropriate vibe for this show, and the closest thing we're gonna get to a Four Corners for the time being.

With blasts of dry ice evaporating immediately as the jets sprayed into the air, this local jazz-punk (punk-jazz?) quartet got the night started with some pleasing precision pummelling.

* Does anyone know the title to this one? Please leave a comment!
