The great shows just keep coming! This time it was back on the Otus stage with our friends "The Alexes!" Alex Gauthier on keys and Alex Smith from Kids Under The Carpet sitting in on guitar. The entire evening was so much fun, energy just pouring from the stage to the ample crowd. Alex G's usually exhaustive piano rig was pared down to 1 keyboard and a couple of amps, but the "less is more" approach really came through the music! Stranger was a standout version, with the band taking it waaaaay furthur than ever before, thanks to Alex Smith's sit in. Golden Road is a debut we waited too long to play, judging by the crowd reaction to the sing along, and just what is there to be said about Sailor>Circumstance>Terrapin>Help>Slip>Viola? You'll just have to check out the videos to find out!
Big thanks to Jody Bauman for live painting and Mike Chojnoski for taking the amazing photos above with Alex Gauthier's camera.
RTD returns to the Blind Pig on December 29.
