Ben Sollee, Daniel Martin Moore, Yim Yames

a few weeks ago i saw this charming trio at the bijou theater. aside from the rowdy red-necks spilling beer behind me, it was great. they skipped an opening act all together, which i thought was a wonderful choice, and played for a pretty solid 2 1/2 hours. unfortunately, i think yim yames had a little too much singing time. i mean, he's good and all, but ben sollee is so much easier to listen to. it wasn't so much yim yames's voice that bothered me-his voice is nice, but he has a tendency to howl in his songs and finish each one with a bang, which is usually unnecessary. daniel martin moore played a perfect amount, and everything he did was delightful. top song: bury me in my car. for this song a dancer from stop came out and accompanied them with a really cool step routine type thing. all in all, it was a great show.
