Full review to follow. The "No Angels Dancing" residency was founded by Allison Cameron as a laboratory to explore her musical ideas. Drummer D. Alex Meeks was on board right from the start, and soon guitarist Stephen Parkinson was joining in regularly as well. With Cameron out of town for the long weekend, her co-conspirators held down the fort for an afternoon of highly pleasing creations. Parkinson is an economical and crafty improviser on the guitar, while Meeks plays with a watchmaker's precision — albeit in a manner suggesting that springs might start bursting forth at any instant, kicking things into a new time signature. Together, they were captivating throughout, whether partaking of polite shredfests, neck-squeezing lockgrooves or finger-rolling folkjams. What a delightful way to spend a Sunday afternoon. [N.B.: The next instalment of the series, with Cameron back in attendance, will be on Sunday, September 7th, from 1 to 3 p.m.]

Bonus! Here's a quick video of the proceedings:
