Review – The Warped 45s at the Academy Bar & Grill Nov 25

another quick blast
no thinking just typing no hyping
just
believe (mostly) all of the words
words up?
have a little faith
in and of and about this,

the word for me
is
veracity

another word
describing me
is
Sunflower

(yeah,
that’s me in the Van Gogh)

The Warped 45s

are

powerfully wonderful

truth truth

eat;
breathe;
their music
love the tunes
oh mando
oh banjo
oh fiddle
and
waltz around
the dance floor
with your best
friend

and enter
the ecstatic
raspberry
jams

just
dance it

i didn’t catch the entire
set
i missed a few songs

Oh, you beautiful
blinding intelligence
sweet and hilarious
Rose Cousins
at The Park
and the handsome singer
song
man

Royal Wood

so, i can’t count
The Warped 45s among
the 42 complete sets
of live music
i’ve experienced so far this
November

here are the songs
i caught
deep
inside
these music loving
bones

Progress
Two Month Old Apologies
Grandpa Carl
Astronaut
We Know One Thing
Why oh Why
10 Day Poem for Saskatchewan
Lyle Lovett’s If I Had a Boat
Radio Sky
Why Have You Passed Me By Grim Reaper
Trestle for a Train

11 songs!
i missed 5 or 6
that’s a sweet
berry
set

and here’s what came to mind,

Tragically Hip
REM
The Band
Tom Petty
John Prine
and
i like that
their gorgeously
uP
LiFtiNG
CD
10 Day Poem For Saskatchewan
(Go Roughies Go!)
is followed by Warren Zevon
on my itunes

now,
that’s
beautiful.

that’s

a very perfect thing

and
the greatest thing
is i Loved
all the songs
they played to
next to no one
at The Academy

less than 20
more than 10

(so many shows
on this Wednesday
night in Winnipeg)

but that didn’t matter

they played it hard
and
played their songs
true
and maybe they
liked
this dancer
too

the band,

Dave McEathron, vocals, guitars
Ryan Wayne McEathorn, vocals, guitars
Kevin Hewitt, keys
Hamal Finn Roye, drums
Alex Needleman, bass

after,
we talked about
mutual friends
The Sunparlour Players
Andrew Penner

how much he loves
what The 45s
are doing

and the possibilities
of finding ways
into the Winnipeg
Folk Festival

if there’s
justice
if there’s a way

The Warped 45s

will be on the main stage
some summer
soon.
