Another great show from the Savannah Stopover crew last week, ranking up there with The Glands at The Wormhole and Pokey LaFarge at the Ships of the Sea Museum in terms of flat out coolness. I really like the space at the Dollhouse, too, I’m looking forward to more shows there.
I wouldn’t have guessed that an old….errr…I mean seasoned Brazilian guy would have been one of the best guitarists I would see this year, but there you have it. The songs are great, but Os Mutantes‘ Sergio Dias Baptista made the guitar work look effortless, with really awesome unexpected chord changes and occasionally a nasty (in a good way) tone that would make a lot of punk and metal guitarists jealous. Really, really interesting to me.
I loved Capsula, too. Solid, punky songs performed by musicians who are obviously having a blast playing them? Sign me up. I think a lot of people were really surprised and by the end of the set they had everyone’s attention. Just plain fun.
Same deal as always, a couple photos here, click through for more. (Bill also posted a gallery last week.)
