For Eating and Drinking (or War)

The concept: Cook delicious bomb-ass food, get musicians around a long table, have candles, wine, and sangria, and let songs and singing break out. What happened: songs and singing broke out. Freestyle flew. Rapturous pastoral vocals echoed off the distant walls of the hanger. The theme was songs about eating and drinking, or songs about war, because we were at the naval base.

Around the table sat members of Arthur & Yu, Tiny Vipers, the Saturday Knights, Stone Gossard, Loch Lomond, and Fences. There was discussion and merriment. There was a smiling Cheryl Waters. Chase Jarvis hovered around clicking shots with various cameras. Mirth poured forth. Chef Hebb served up baby back ribs with mango scraps, garlic, onion, and fresh bay leaf. There was an uncanny succotash. For dessert, strawberry shortcake. And more mirth.

The acoustics in the hanger were depth defying. Tiny Vipers’ Jesy Fortino sat and adamantly strummed her guitar. When she sang, her warm sepia toned voice bounced off the walls one hundred feet away. The candles had melted down. It was incredible to sit so close to her guitar yet hear her voice echoing so far off. Live reverb. Tilson and Barfly got up with Stone Gossard and mirthed it up freestyle. It was the succotash highlight of the night:

Grant from Arthur & Yu was poised and eyes closed for a song about a dark horse:


And Loch Lomond, who are about to tour with the Decemberists:
