I was mainly at The Evening Muse the night of tax day to check out The Ravenna Colt, but were also interested in checking out North Carolina band Roman Candle. Unfortunately, the rhythm section of The Ravenna Colt didn’t make it to this show (they apparently would be joining back for the rest of the tour), so it wasn’t a true representation of the band’s sound. However, the songs still sounded good, if a bit too stripped down. Roman Candle were fun and upbeat, though it was a shame that they started fairly late and by the time they finished after 1am most of the crowd had cleared out.

After their set I did get a chance to speak with the Johnny and  the guitarist from The Ravenna Colt about a variety of topics incuding the farm that Johnny owns (where My Morning Jacket recorded their early albums) as well as bourbon – both were super nice guys. I look forward to checking both of these bands out again.
