performance :: avey tare and kria brekken

avey tare and kria brekken played to a packed house at tonic on sunday. beach house was a surprise opener, i enjoyed her voice and organ driven slow tempo tunes, reminded me of a darker mazzy star. a couple new tunes from avey and kria this time, and older tunes with flushed out arrangements. almost over an hour of performing. kria and avey ran into some lengthy tuning sessions, but otherwise it was another intimate performance of unique folky tunes. a couple of new covers this time too. no love from strangers, somebody unknowningly sat on my condenser mic i had clipped to a bass drum, thus i have the only in mono. i ended up having to clip the remaing working mic to my jacket and standing still as a statue. le sigh.
