The Evens @ The Public Trust, Nov 10, 2007
it was amazing to be in the presence of rock legend and personal hero, Ian McKaye, and his partner, Amy Farina. with his bald head, white gym socks, and soft-spoken demeanor, it was easy to see that this duo has no intention of being the next White Stripes. the crowd was asked to sit on the floor and nearly all chose to do so. it was a bit like being at a Raffi show, but with really good music...
McKaye's guitar work for The Evens is in his distinctive style - low, minor chords and rapid progressions. made me wonder if he even thinks in that same key...all in all, it was a good performance. kudos to The Public Trust for booking and hosting, it's a fine gallery and venue. and kudos to everyone who got organized and down to the gallery by 830p to see the show. keep this up, Dallas, and folks might think we have a scene around here.
