We saw two very different bands in April, both at the Cradle. First off was They Might Be Giants. They did not have an opener and played two sets and @36 songs total. Really fun show with a crowd to match. Opened with Istanbul and closed with Birdhouse. Could not have asked for a better show from those guys.
Then we saw JOHNNYSWIM on 4/23. They were one of our favorite ‘new to us’ bands on Cayamo and hearing them live took us back to the boat for sure. The crowd was really great for them. They had played in the triangle before at the Carolina Theatre in Durham, but the club show was much more their style and energy. One song in Abner guaranteed a return to the Cradle just on the energy alone.
Whilst I am catching up, we also saw Duran Duran at the DPAC on a Monday night March 28th. They blew through all their classics, but stiffed us with no Reflex.
