this evening fell on what was likely the coldest night of the year, yet still folks came out to embrace the grimness & sit quietly with warm mason jars full of hot toddys.
jae played downtuned, dark & heavy country folk songs while the candles flickered & lit up a corner of the room.
hex partners laid down a skull with crystal eyes & summoned up doomy delusions & took the crowd from a comfortable but sad limbo into imaginary frozen depths.
sockfoot sang beautifully with a secret chorus of supporters & conjured up images of a wintery forest, full of predators & glowing eyes.
lastly, as the room was finally warm, jakery, accompanied by anonymous puppeteers, played slow & emotional ukulele songs surrounded by dancing shadows & monsters.
& all of it was beautiful.
