MUSIC: Brown Bird Celebrates Release Of Fits Of Reason At The Met

Monday, April 08, 2013

 

Warren's own Brown Bird celebrated the release of their new album, Fits of Reason, on stage this weekend at The Met.

This past Friday at The Met in Pawtucket, Warren folk duo Brown Bird celebrated the release of their brand new album Fits Of Reason. Alec K. Redfearn & The Eyesores and Last Good Tooth rounded out an all-Rhody bill that was sure to astound and impress. The hottest ticket in the state was at The Met and if weren't here than you missed out big time.

Alec K. Redfearn & The Eyesores

A musician who has been playing eclectic and unique music for ages as well as being an underrated legend in my opinion, Alec K. Redfearn & The Eyesores started things off by captivating the audience. "Elzebet", "Unawake", "Hackles Up", a rendition of Billie Holiday's "Gloomy Sunday", "Traumadoliday", "Fire Shuffle" and "Scratch" exuded gypsy rhythms and lovely sounds that had me memorized. Alec K. Redfearn & The Eyesores will be playing next at The Rhode Island Eat & Drink Festival going on from April 19th to the 21st, so feast on delicious grub & tasty brew while checking out an unreal band.

Last Good Tooth

A quartet that seems to get better and better like a bottle of good wine every time I see them, Last Good Tooth played second fiddle on the bill tonight and were tight as ever. They played a bunch of new songs that don't have any names yet but they had people movin' and a groovin' right in front of the stage. Speaking of things with no names, Last Good Tooth has a new album that is yet to be named due out next month. If it's as good as The Meeting Was A Success then you better get it when it hits record store shelves.

Brown Bird

To conclude an excellent display of spectacular tunes, it was the duo that the packed house waited to see. Brown Bird consisting of MorganEve Swain and David Lamb went up on stage and gave everyone what they wanted to hear. "Iblis", "Blood Of Angels", "Ragged Old Town", "Seven Hells", "Fingers To The Bone". "Nine Eyes", "Nothing Left", "Hitchens", "Danger & Dread", "Down To The River", "Thunder & Lightning", "The Messenger", "Bilgewater", "Bow For Blade" featuring The Devil Makes Three's Lucia Torrino, "Wayward Daughter", and then a double whammy of "Barren Lakes" and "Shiloh" with former violinist of Zox and MorganEve's brother Spencer Swain followed up with a finale "Threads Of Measure" to end a simply fantastic performance. Brown Bird wasn't done yet though, they went back on stage for an encore of "Cast No Shadow" that had everyone in attendance riled up and going absolutely crazy.

If you haven't given Fits Of Reason a listen yet then you absolutely should, in my opinion is their best work yet and it'll totally impress your ears. Sold out shows at The Met are guaranteed to be etched into your mind for eternity, log on to themetri.com to see when the next big act is gracing their stage.
