I saw a fabulous performance by Crooked Fingers on Wednesday night. Crooked Fingers is essentially the solo project of Eric Bachmann, the former singer for Archers of Loaf. They've been one of my favorite musical selections over the last couple of years, and seeing Bachmann live would have been a treat under any circumstances. What made Wednesday’s show special was that Bachmann played on the floor of the club instead of the stage. There were only about 100 people in the room, so everyone gathered around for an acoustic set. It was dark, quiet, and incredible.
If you like dark, drunken, folky music, I highly recommend checking out Crooked Fingers. KEXP has an interview and performance that gives a good introduction.
