Cheer up Charlies 11/14/14

We went to Cheer up Charlies new location this past Friday the 14.   It has been a while since the last time we ventured out to cover local music but we were pleasantly surprised by the local talent.

The night started with musician Sydney Wright, a one woman show from Snyder Texas.  She was not only very original with her lyrics that more than once remind us of multitude of break ups, much a la ‘Taylor Swift’  but with a closer to home authentic feel.

Slomo Drags self described as ‘equal parts pop gold and noisy guitar irrelevance’ with their catchy sounds kept us alive and dancing. For more on them, check Slomo

Danny’s Speeddreamer release album was the occasion for the gathering and the place was packed. We would have missed Danny’s performance had we not planned right, feeding the parking meter in between acts counts as a work out/speed walk/race against the clock.

Self-produced record, said to be recorded in isolation with one mic and a 4-track cassette recorder, the production was a raw mix of acoustics and soul searching lyrics.
