If you read either of our recent interviews with Tim Barry or The Draft’s Jason Black, you are no doubt aware that both acts are part of some of the cooler touring lineups this summer (the former with Cory Branan and Des Ark, the latter with Luther and Cheap Girls). More astute readers will recall that there were two dates in which both tours overlapped in such a perfect manner that they actually combined lineups for a sort of six-act super show. Luckily for this writer, the first of those dates was last weekend at the legendary Middle East Nightclub in Cambridge, MA.
As you might imagine, the eclectic lineup served to present showgoers with a truly unique concert-going experience. To really do the show justice, a solid review would probably border on 3000 words, even for one who doesn’t ramble the way that I do. If you live anywhere within a hundred-mile radius of either of these tours independently, they really shouldn’t be missed. If you’re lucky enough to live in Detroit, site of the other overlap, there’s really no excuse…
