November 24, 2008

Friday night at Cake Shop saw the next step in the evolution of the excellent band The Loom — the first time we have seen them play before a packed house. When a band with tremendous musical chops, harmonies and songwriting ability begins to accumulate critical praise, as The Loom have throughout 2008, it is only a matter time before the word spreads and the crowds grow. The band responded with quite a bit of friendly banter with the crowd and a prototypical strong set. We continue to be impressed with the work of guitarist-multi-instrumentalist Mark Rogers and his seamless transition into the band. The set also saw the inclusion of several new numbers and one apparent debut performance, which should mean that the anticipated follow-up to the At Last Light EP can not be far away.

We recorded from our usual spot at Cake Shop and the sound quality is quite excellent. There was quite a lot of rambunctiousness in the crowded room, but not much ended up on the recording. This is perhaps the best of the four recordings of the Loom that have been featured on this site. The other three are [here] [here] and [here]. Enjoy!
