Folk Fridays @ Fireproof

On Friday night I headed over to Fireproof to catch part of their on going Folk series. Fireproof have put together a great lineup of this set of concerts. They had Jason Molina of Magnolia Electric Co. perform, they have TK Webb this week, Vetiver will play there on July 19th and they have Bonnie "prince" Billy and Hazel Dickens wrapping it all up at Joe's Pub in August.
Example
First up on Friday was 2% Majesty. 2% Majesty is boy girl duo that plays quiet traditional folk music. I wasn't really that impressed with their set but they seemed to be having a good time. It was also a nice relaxing way to start the evening.
Example
Up next was Alex K Redfearn & the Eyesores. I never saw Alex k perform while I lived in Providence but supposedly he has been playing around Rhode Island for a number of years. Although I thought their performance was rather flat their noisy eastern European folk music did intrigue me.
Example
The final band of the night was O'Death. Who have been getting a lot of blog attention lately, both Jerry Yeti and Heart on a Stick have written about them in the past few weeks. O'Death put on a great show. It was very fitting that a bottle of Jim Bean was passed throughout the crowd and onto stage through out the entire night. The crowd of about 30 people were hooting and hollering during the entire set. O'Death play every Wednesday during June at Pete's Candy Shop be sure to check them out, you won't be disappointed.

wow, was o'death a lot of fun or what? i'd heard a few mp3s from the album before and liked what i'd heard, but they do not even come close to the live show. so much energy, sorta reminded me of a country-fried man man. i'll try to get to a couple of the pete's shows. pics up soon.

They do seem to be the southern cousin of Man Man.
