The Evangenitals at The Silverlake Lounge, 12-29-14
"How Can I Choose"
Last night I saw a great
lineup of bands at The Silverlake Lounge, including two bands whose 2014
releases made my list of favorite CDs of the year. Kicking off the night were
The Evangenitals, whose Moby Dick; Or,
The Album is on that list. They started their set with “Ahab’s Leg,” a nice
slow version like that on the album, and followed that with “Just Stay Away.”
Because they were a foursome last night, with Juli Crockett and Lisa Dee backed
by just bass and drums, “Just Stay Away” had a more stripped down sound, with
Joey Maramba’s delicious bass being very prominent. “Quee Queg” was performed
with more of a funky R&B bass line and “sha-ba-dooby-doo” vocals. They also
did a couple of covers:a nice, slow
version of The Dead Milkmen’s “Dean’s Dream” from the album Big Lizard In My Backyard, and an
excellent rendition of “Live And Let Live,” a country song made popular by
Marty Robbins. And it’s always a treat to hear the incredibly fun “How Can I Choose.”

I started the music blog to let people know about all the good music that is out there. I only review CDs that I like. (This is partly selfish, as I don't want to listen to music I dislike.) Good Things About Bad Movies is about finding something good even in the worst films.
I created an index, with a list of all of my blog entries, including Shakespeare entries and music reviews, arranged alphabetically by subject. Here is the link: http://michaeldohertyindex.blogspot.com/
My friend Jason and I have a web series, "Grandmother Winsome's Variety Minute," and several episodes are up on You Tube, and also on the Grandmother's Fanny Game blog. What else? I am fascinated by the Marquis De Sade and Elizabeth Bathory. I often make decisions based on the humor factor.
