One of my favorite groups played at Evanston SPACE last night. They don't tour very often anymore, so I was glad to catch them live.
From left to right, Robbie Schaefer, Julie Murphy-Wells, and Michael Clem:
(Drummer Eddie Hartness—he's not really from Ohio—was hard to photograph from where I was sitting.)
Another shot of Murphy-Wells and Clem:
It was a fun concert. Their opener, Jake Armerding, played with the group during their entire set, and added something to what was already a pretty tight quartet. It's unusual that adding someone to a band after 22 years makes things better, but in this case, he really works.
The band had CDs of the evening's performance ready for sale 15 minutes after they finished.
