Round 3 at the Q Cafe

It seems that I have just been writing about music lately… sorry for the lack of posts, I have been busy and haven’t found a stretch of time in which to write a proper blog entry (and I haven’t had as much motivation lately, just doing other things I guess).

Last night (August 22nd), The Q Cafe hosted “Round 3″ in which four artists performed. Singers/songwriters Jocelyn Feil of Late Tuesday, Aaron Sprinkle, and Sherri Youngward performed and Scott Erickson did some live painting during the music.

This was Jocelyn’s first solo so that was fun to hear. She played some new ones and also threw in a kazoo and mouth trumpet solo. Her banter is always fun. It is cool to know that she also has the talent and ability to so well on her own although hearing her with Late Tuesday is always a pleasure too. I had never heard Sprinkle or Youngward but really enjoyed their stuff as well. I don’t know if I would go out of my way to hear Youngward again (that sounds much worse than I mean it), she had some beautiful songs and a good voice, but not quite my taste, but I am sure others of you would definitely love her stuff, so don’t let me discourage you from listening! Sprinkle I was really impressed with. Apparently he produces music (including Late Tuesday’s second CD) but also has quite a singing voice that is distinct and strong enough for him to stand out to me. I think I will probably have to check out a few of his CDs. It doesn’t seem like he does to many shows, but be on the lookout! Erickson was painting during the musical acts and did two pieces: a VW bus in the sun and a young boy. He has a very distinct style (I think he must be the guy that painted Late Tuesday’s most recent album cover Remeber We Forget as the styles are quite similar). Now I don’t really know much about painting so I don’t have much to say, but I liked it, pretty simple, but nice.

Be watching out for Round Three which will be in late September and down at Golden Gardens park. Head over to to get on their mailing list for more information (or just come back here). Also, The Pale Pacific has a new album out today: Urgency - check it out!

I forgot my camera so I didn’t get any pictures of the show. :( So instead, enjoy this picture of Aslan:

Ή χάρις του κυρίου ημων Ίησου Χριστου μεθ’ υμων.
