Artist: Entire Cities
Song: Owen Sound
Recorded at Junction City Music Hall (Pickles Aid), January 17, 2017.Entire Cities - Owen Sound
Faced with an xmas eve layoff, Duncan "Doc Pickles" MacDonell was facing some financial and existential roadblocks — so in a "get by with a little help from my friends" gesture, Young Doctors in Love's Clay Puddester got the ball rolling for this benefit show. With the General Chaos lights swirling behind the stage, there was a strong old-school Wavelength vibe in the room. With their mix of literate bot-mots and drinking stories, Entire Cities channels a similar spirit to, say, The Burning Hell, along with an indie collective esprit de corps that says "why not!" when the issue of tossing in a banjo player or soaring trumpet parts during the choruses is raised.
[Rolling with the psychic vibes from this show, Doc Pickles is reviving his Crosswires series, which will be moving to the Baby G with shows on Mondays once the sun crosses the vernal equinox. Information on the first couple shows is already posted on the Crosswires facebook page.]
