Otto Hauser and Asa Irons at True Vine Records

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.
