Think ABout Life

The showcase started shortly after 7pm, when spunky Montreal quartet Think About Life kicked off a set of gangly, effusive sampler-enriched funk rock before a crowd of maybe 30 onlookers–a third of whom were photographers. For the most part, the bill ran like clockwork: The Walter Schreifels Band quickly recovered from a momentary technical glitch to deliver a loose set of well-crafted, rootsy rockers, ending with a darkly bluesy cover of “Summertime” from George Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess. Nathaniel Rateliff and the Wheel, a Denver group newly signed to the Rounder label, conjured the ghosts of Nick Drake and Gram Parsons with spare, moody folk-rock wrapped in grainy arrangements anchored by a fantastic bassist, Julie Davis.

It’s true. For the second time in a row, Think About Life played to a small crowd at Music Hall of Williamsburg (10/20). It filled up nicely by the time Walter went on, and then even more people were there for Nathaniel and then it was a completely packed house for Laura Marling and The Antlers (and a slightly less packed house for late-night show-closer Fanfarlo).

Think About Life are awesome for doing the early set, especially since its not the type of crowd they’re used to back home. And those that did get to see them, seemed to love them. And I heard Arlene’s was more at capacity for their only other CMJ show which happened at Arlene’s Grocery last night (10/21).
