In tandem with the photos I posted yesterday, here is my review (written under the name of Ady’s and my Two Sisters and a Show entity) of the Rochester, New York show for our friends over at Frankiesgun.com, a great site dedicated to The Felice Brothers. Check it out, it’s loaded with the photos and two videos I shot at the show, as well as the sole video to have popped up so far—taken by another audience member/fan,—of the epic “River Jordan,” aka the one where “the Guild was killed.” Thanks again to Sean, who is over there at the controls of Frankiesgun.com, for sharing my review on his site.
By the way, if you’re not yet familiar with The Felice Brothers, you should poke around the rest of Sean’s site, it’s a great way to get your feet wet with their music, loads of other videos, photos and information about the band. Then go catch them live, they’re currently adding dates in the US (including Cleveland and Philadelphia and points in between and down south) through early November and in the UK through December. You’ll thank me if you do you know . . . ’cause without a doubt it’s the greatest show on earth!
Another video from the Two Sisters ever-growing vaults…this time taken by me this past weekend in Rochester, New York. The other half of Two Sisters couldn’t make it, nor could another dear friend, but as it would happen at the last moment, yet another longtime-should-be-another-sister friend was able to go with me on the fly and supported my need to be at this show. Turns out it was quite a show to be at for many reasons, one of which includes being there to see the last moments of the existence of Ian Felice’s beautiful Guild guitar during “River Jordan” at the end of the show…honestly the most emotionally charged, heart wrenching performance I’ve ever been witness to. More of that here, and elsewhere as I’ll be sharing some of my photos and video and some words about the show with another site, Frankiesgun.com as well sometime within the week.
For today I’ve uploaded “Goddamn You, Jim” a seemingly impromptu performance during which time bassist Xmas was repairing his bass . . . haunting and lovely:
and a few photos for now:
Can’t get enough of these guys no matter how much I try (damn them for being so good!)

Thanks to FlipSideSlide via youtube for these, the sound and video quality are fantastic. I also in the process of finding these, discovered the video author is also a visual artist and happily stumbled upon this site for Esteban Bojorquez so I am going to of course suggest you take a look at some of the pretty fantastic work over there (be sure to check out the guitars!!) once you’ve watched these.
