And the NMH part of my review of the Galaxy show...
... Warm-up act
Hotel shares Superchunk's optimistic aura. They are led by Jeff
Magnum, a folk singer with an insatiable itch to experiment
with and fuzzify his intelligent ballads.
Those who saw NMH last year had to be ecstatic about its performance this time around. Last year, Magnum, who had the flu, could barely keep his head up and his drummer was a no show. This time, a full band was ready to make their songs come alive.
It was a bona fide rock and roll circus, complete with the versatile Julian Koster playing his "singing saw." The group clicked early with outstanding versions of "Song Against Sex," and "A Baby for Pree."
