Went to the True Vine Record Shop in Hampden last evening to see Otto Hauser (Espers) and Asa Irons (Feathers) play. Neat venue- a small record store with a cool selection- the concert took place in the back room surrounded by vinyl. About a dozen people were there- Tara Burke (Fursaxa) stopped in before her show at the Ottobar. Hauser played first- it was a single piece with him making ambient noise with his guitar and pedals. Mellow- very soft- nice. Afterwards, he mentioned he is playing with Devendra Banhart at Sonar in June.
He was followed by Asa Irons, a guy from New England. He started off playing percussion on large saw blades. They have a cool rich sound. Then he played and sang a few soft folky songs. All in all a nice show. I left then to go see Fursaxa.
