Artist: Not The Wind, Not The Flag & Friends
Songs: [excerpt] + Auld Lang Syne
Recorded at The Tranzac (Southern Cross Lounge), December 31, 2016.
As always, The Tranzac was a cool and friendly zone to hang out in on New Year's Eve, with two stages of music all night long. Originally slated as an appearance by Not The Wind, Not The Flag to ring in the New Year, Brandon Valdivia and Colin Fisher ended up taking the stage alongside Brodie West and Thom Gill (on piano). Things were just starting to simmer nicely when, as midnight passed, the group kicked over into "Auld Lang Syne". Maybe the promise of a new year includes a full-length set from this grouping — I mean, one can hope.
