Seriously Serious Concert No. 12: Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers, 7/12/09 by Barbecue Bros

Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers, originally uploaded by twoguns.

Openers Chuck Mead and His Grassy Knoll Boys out of Nashville were old school country rock, which was kind of cool for a change. Multi-instrumentalist Carco was arguably the star of the show, easing between pedal steel, bass, and what looked to be a tiny electric guitar. Set highlight was “a love song” called “She Got the Ring (I Got the Finger)” but the whole set was enjoyable, even if that type of music isn’t my normal bag.

As compared to the last time I was at Neigborhood Theatre about a month earlier for a sold out Band of Horses show, there unfortunately was barely 50 people to see Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers on Sunday night. However, thankfully that sort of thing doesn’t mean this band is going to take the night off in terms of bringing a solid, fun live performance. On the contrary, they played a longer set and were very gracious in taking requests for songs Refreshments as well as Peacemakers, which they were able to handle with ease. “Nada” was especially good, as were old favorites “Down Together,” “Banditos,” “Mexico,” “Tell Yer Mama” and closer “Green and Dumb”

My musical tastes have changed pretty drastically since I loved this band in high school, but I will always check out these guys live whenever possible because I know I can always expect a great live show from a bunch of guys who are just happy to be able to connect with their fans in a live setting.

Some photos from the show can be found here, though I wasn’t able to take advantage of the close proximity since I only had my camera phone for this show

Next up: Coldplay at Verizon Wireless Ampitheater on 8/7
