Warm as Ice Storm 07 and Vintage

Singer songwriter, Graig Markel, played Chop Suey last night. The songs were warm and drifting and soundtracks unto themselves. The lyrics darkened and became schemes. The band was Shea Bliss on drums and Jeff McCallum on a big ass stand up bass through a 68 Ampeg Portaflex amp.
Markel played a 62 Fender Jaguar Reissue guitar through a 65 Fender Delux amp. He played tape loops and mellotron samples via foot pedals through a 62 Airline Combo. Playing the foot pedals, Markel was like a Mark Kozelek version of Geddy Lee.
