Thanks for coming to see us in Purcellville Saturday! It was a crazy weekend to play a concert what with multiple weddings, proms, mother’s day, and general distracting merriment all around, but we managed to gather a welcoming crowd of 100. We really appreciated being able to perform our music for you. So much joy.
Among the best features of the show was playing our music for our moms. Three of four moms were present at the show; the fourth in spirit (and half of her genes were on the stage as well).
It’s going to take a while to wrangle the bits into shape from the show. Jack McGraw shot some video, and we have sound files from the board. We’ll have to see how they come together. Expect some results soon.
Meanwhile, Joel Winstead took an extraordinarily analog approach to the concert documentation problem. Here are the sketches he made (in the dark) during the show. We love this art inspired by our art. Thanks Joel!
And for good measure, one photograph of the stage.
What? Had to go to a wedding? Well come see us July 6th at a private party (more about that soon). Or August 1st at Glen Echo Park.

That was a really nice concert. You guys rock. OK, even my teenage sons (who normally roll their eyes when I listen to western / Indian classic music) thought you guys were cool. Lyrics – reflective, introspective, and written by folks who live “normal” lives. Loved it. Y’all (if I can use that term here) are excellent musicians, you have a healthy respect for each other, and you actually like each other. And you know what? We can all see that from our dark seats!! Clark – loved your voice. Allen – loved your guitar work.
Here is my definition of good music – music that touches your heart is good music. Your music just did that.
Rock on and hope to see you soon for your other concerts.
And yes, I was sitting next to Joel and loved to see his sketches displayed here.
Thank you Chandu. There is nothing quite as gratifying as this kind of feedback for our art.
