This past holiday (Victoria Day in Canada) weekend was primarily spent doing projects around the house, organizing my closet and cleaning. To break up the chores, I saved the evenings for entertainment. Saturday night a friend and I went to see "In the Next Room" (a hilarious play about female hysteria and vibrators) and on Sunday night I watched Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith (I'm officially hooked on the series!) while sipping wine & eating homemade oatmeal cookies. Friday was date night and my man and I did something we don't do nearly enough, went to hear live music.
The band was called Morlove and the lead singer's name was Miss Emily Brown. The band hails from Vancouver and plays orchestral folk music. Not my typical genre (I am a country music fan), I heard about the group from a family friend who jokingly asked if I had a musical talent she didn't know about, seeing as the lead singer and I share the exact same name. I am so glad I went to the show as my ears were treated to magical melodies, beautiful harmonizing and intelligent lyrics.
Morlove's opening act was Hannah Epperson, who used a loop pedal to record her violin playing which gave the appearance that you were listening to a whole orchestra instead of a solo act. For only $10 a person, the show lasted almost 3 hours and left both the man and I energized for the rest of the evening. I bought Hannah and Emily's CD's and can't wait to recreate the experience at home.
Have you ever stumbled across a band by accident? Was it a pleasant surprise or a disappointing letdown?
