Grazing

There was something for every musical appetite at the Westword Music Showcase.

Through it all, I kept returning to the Outdoor Stage. The Erica Brown Band sounded as polished as ever, while Love.45-- just back from recording sessions at London Bridge Studios in Seattle -- tried out some of its new songs. Born in the Flood, which I've always thought was built for arenas, did nothing to disprove that notion. "This is an anthem," sang frontman Nathaniel Rateliff. Indeed it was. Meanwhile, Yo, Flaco! held its own against Arrested Development, the much-ballyhooed national headliner. Speech and his posse were pretty tight, from what I heard over the fence, but I couldn't tell you for sure, since I finished off the night at Two AM, where the members of Drug Under had reunited with former Sick bassist Aaron Greenwall. Only caught one song, but needless to say, it was sick.

And that was it for me. Stick a fork in this smorgasbord, the Showcase is done for this year -- except for the awards ceremony, set for Monday night at the Bluebird.
