And Then There Were Three
Old Springs Pike played a surprise show last night at Rockwood. Not so much a surprise because they were scheduled and everything, but more a surprise because, when they were scheduled, they were a four piece and--from here on out--there's only three of them.
And there's nothing like a day's notice on the eve of a tour to really shake things up.
But, last night on the small stage at Rockwood with people crammed in on top of each other and an encore penned by John Denver but embedded in the Peter, Paul and Mary songbook, the three-part harmony was revelatory and the energy was (to me at least) more catchy than their recent residency at Joe's Pub.
There's something about crisis that can lift a soul and bond a group and maybe that's what's going on here.
Anyway, last night seemed like the start of something special . . .
