Photos of Terrapin, The Old Salt, and Dreamy Weather ~ This is ...

Saturday night after Fools Play I successfully walked the 2.5 blocks to Le Voyeur in time to catch the music show that was happening there. Of the 4 music acts, I had seen three of them before.

Frances Rose is a goddess who stuns you with her golden voice. Breathtaking as always.

Terrapin Productions drowns you in his wall of sound:

Terrapin: Shoe-Gazin' Rockstar

The Old Salt attacks with his driven, unconventional soundscapes:

The Old Salt and Terrapin Productions really complement each other’s sounds. They play in a similar genre but with very different styles.

But the real revelation of the night was Dreamy Weather, whom I’d never heard of before this show:

Dreamy Weather: Dreamy Duet

A duet with a ukulele/vocalist and an electric guitarist, Dreamy Weather blew me away. Evelyn (ukulele/vocals) has a sing-songy, high voice like Katharine Whalen (of Squirrel Nut Zippers) or Nataly Dawn (of Pomplamoose), but with a bit more power behind it. And she looks like a cross between Zooey Deschanel and Lisa Loeb. Plus she plays the ukulele, which is always a bonus for me:

Completely adorable and enjoyable. Evelyn and Frances Rose geeked out about BeyoncĂ© between all the sets. Dreamy Weather only performed a small handful of songs, but that’s just because they’ve only been playing together for a very short time and don’t really have any more songs. I totally would love to see them perform again soon.
