Will Gattis and Jeff Beam Played TWO [5.24.11]

The same night as the Dawes/Brett Dennen show just down the road, two eponymous local acts took the stage for Port City Music Hall‘s weekly TWO show. Both 60’s psych/britpop-inspired rocked Jeff Beam (his band dropped the Ice Storm… part) and Foldsian piano man Will Gattis have have featured albums here on HillyTown in the past, and Beam even played the winter Picnic event that we curated (that reminds me, look out for the summer Picnic music lineup to be announced before long, and get those vendor applications in!). Both acts performed strongly, but Gattis deserves extra credit for playing through an illness (food poisoning, potentially) that made him leave the stage multiple times, returning each time to get right back into the next song. Read on for photos from the show!
