Last month, I saw Savoir Adore open for Sea Wolf on the small inside stage at Stubbs. There was a lot going on in that last sentence, so I’ll just give you a minute with that.
I took at variety of terrible shots on my iPhone … oh and here’s one of Sea Wolf. Awesome. A room full of people taking photos on their iPhones…the modern concert. A treasure of high quality documentation right there.
But no matter that I was watching Savoir Adore in between tiny rectangles of light, they were fantastic. Check them out.
I did become a bit suspicious when they finished the set up with a cover of Prince’s I Would Die for You, and I was the only one in the room singing along. Who were these people around me at this concert?
And so I asked the groups around us if they knew the name of the last song. Nope. One girl helpfully suggested that she could look it up on Spotify for me. No, no that’s okay.
And they had no idea it was a cover.
I really have nothing else to say about that.
Except to say, the band has also covered the New Radicals….which they say reminds them of childhood. It reminds me of the time I was living in the Rice Lofts in downtown Houston and was juggling my fifth adult job while I was on a jury for nine months. I don’t remember much about that time except that almost every day, as I consumed cheese pizza from Frank’s and drank a lot of gin at the State Bar, this song was playing in the background.
So the band…and its following…is possibly a bit green, but I do not hold that against them. They are going places. So follow them. You won’t be disappointed.
