We’re starting to really get used to – and enjoy – these shows where bands take it to the crowd, be that on the floor, or on chairs, benches, bars, etc. Last night at SPACE Gallery was certainly one of those. Though Brooklyn band Lucius had to cancel, the two acts still on the bill truly made the most of the night. You Won’t opened and won the crowd over, going off-mic and singing from the middle of the room for a portion of their set. Later, headliners Pearl And The Beard did the same, even inviting their friend Lady Lamb The Beekeeper (who opens for Kaki King at the same venue tomorrow night) to close out the night with a song she’d helped the band to write. It was definitely a fun night with a room full of friendly, appreciative (and attractive, according to PATB) people. More of these, please.
