A Brief View of the Hudson was booked for Sunday at Kirk Avenue Music Hall. But Kirk Ave. canceled the show. That didn’t faze this traveling trio, which immediately set to finding a new spot to play.
Today, a gig came through. The band will play Awful Arthur’s, downtown Roanoke, on Sunday. It probably wouldn’t have mattered if it had scored that slot, because the band told me via its twitter account that it would play a street corner or a house. Busking fools! Glad they’ve got a warm joint in which to set up.
Check out the A Brief View of the Hudson’s album, “Querencia,” via bandcamp.com. Good acoustic stuff with strong vocals from Ann Enzminger, nice harmony, violin melodies, accordion chug and a bit of a country feel. Absolutely worthwhile 9 p.m. Sunday listening. Will update with cover charge. UPDATE 3:30 p.m. 2.14.13: Cover will be no more than $2 and might be free, according to the band.
Check out video of the band’s song, “Down South.”
