The Mighty Good Boys
The Mighty Goods went on stage with their infectious brand of folk-rock and everyone was shuffling their feet to the glorious sound. A great opening set featuring "Stranger", "Dead Done Wrong", "Take A Train", "Upstate" and "Cincinnati" rocked the crowd into oblivion and provided an ingenious start to the night. The Mighty Good Boys will be working on a new album in a few months so definitely keep your eyes peeled.
Last Good Tooth
Indie rockers Last Good Tooth added gloriously eerie feeling to the night, led my guitarist Penn Sultan's soothing, staccato-esque voice. "Awkward Friends", "2001 Massacre", "Eeeeeeee", "Look What I Made" and "Forget McDonald" highlighted an emphatic performance for the power trio, who were without their fiddle player this evening. Last Good Tooth has an album out under the title The Meeting Was A Great Success that you have to grab next time you see these guys play.
Up last were a band that are no stranger to a review by yours truly, garage pop post-everything rock & rollers Ravi Shavi. Rafay Rashid and the boys kicked it off with a brand new song "Once" and then into a flurry of "InDecision", "Courage", "Birds", "Quickersand", "Accidental Mental", "She's Out There Being A Sneaky Little Bitch", "Bobbie's Hobbies", "Mediocre Millions", "Vacation Holiday" and "Demigods" that had people cutting a rug on The Met's hardwood floor. Tapestries' Mike Decosta then joined Ravi Shavi on stage with a guitar and played "Onamaton" for a fantastic encore. Another great night of local music at one of the best live music venues in New England, check out www.themetri.com to see when the next dynamic show is blowing the roof off the joint.
