Whenever I go see Tatiana (of Daisy Spot) and her husband Brian play in whatever musical venture they currently have going, I feel like I am privileged enough to see something magical that for some reason most people can't feel. Does that make sense? Scott and I both feel this way. I have memories of the first time I saw Daisy Spot, at the Guild, maybe 17 years ago. I still remember songs from that show that I probably have never heard them sing again. I remember seeing Scott drumming in their kid band, Friendly Creatures, which had hilarious songs about the ice cream man. I remember a show at Bows that I wished would go on forever, instead of feeling impatient for the set to end like I usually do. A few months back, Scott and I got word of a party they were playing at, some project that didn't even have a name maybe, with their friends and a huge assortment of drums and keyboards and lot of noisemakers. We just watched them play in a garage, to less than ten people and I really could not believe my ears. I felt like I couldn't stop smiling. I don't know, magical is the only word.
I wo n't even go into how ridiculously beautiful those two are (the two on the right here), or how Bryan looks like the coolest dude on the block from 1972 and Tatiana just keep getting more lovely every year. Oh my god, I am dorking out real bad. I grabbed this pic from the web and it turned out to be an old MidMo picture. It's from an article Gballz wrote about, hey here's a coincidence, Magic Moments from shows over the years!
Which is all to say that their current project, Tender Cinders, is playing at The Press tonight around 9. It's also some Northern Soul night and they're the only band playing.
