This Little Underground
Our live music columnist checks out Youth Brigade, Adolescents and Cook Trio
Published: January 9, 2013
As for the aforementioned new stage, the night's murky, Seattle-like weather pushed the show inside, unfortunately (though it was kind of cool seeing the charming interior stuffed with a lively punk crowd). What was clear, however, is that this tall, covered and fully lit stage is built for scale and permanence. And, sure as shit, I'll be back soon just to enjoy a show on it. You should really treat yourself, too.
The Cook Trio is unquestionably the area's best jazz Manouche combo. OK, so maybe they're the only one, but they still completely rule. And since Redlight Redlight's big move to Audubon Park, they've been without a hometown residency. But they recently did their gypsy swing thing and splashed their deep ambience all over Lil' Indies (Jan. 4) – a new place that many of you insiders likely already know well, what with all your inside-y ways and shit. And it's as good a spot for them as any.
You did say one of your New Year's resolutions was to get out more and check out different – and always presumably cool – things, riiight? Thought so. Consider your list already started. Because I love you, is all.
