Back when winter had its icy grip on the Nation's Capital, the folks ate Megaphono held a mini-festival around town to promote the local music industry. I caught a bunch of fine sets at such diverse locales as St. Alban's, the Record Centre and the Dominion Tavern. One of the acts at the Dom was Michael Rault, a popster on the way to releasing a new album on the well-respected Burger Records label (also Peach Kelli Pop's American outlet). Lo, summer has arrived, and so has Living Daylight. Last Thursday he dropped by Babylon to wow the select few (seriously, where was everyone?) with his suitable summery stylings. But first, Street Meat, a band I can't really imagine performing until the pavement has soaked up a certain amount of heat.
My photos of their set were not the best I've ever taken ...
Dual vocal action!
And so on!
On to Michael Rault, whose gentle manner and moustache both remind me of George Harrison.
And here's the other half of his eponymous band, whom he introduced and whose names I promptly forgot.
Jolly percussive action!
The whole lot!
I do believe that's a Longhorn Baritone.
And so on!
A pretty good time.
