Last night I attended Ryan Power's low-key, incredibly moving CD release party at Brett Hughes' Winooski pad.
What a great night. First of all, Brett's place is a wonderful spot for an intimate show. All red lights, red walls, and general opium den ambience. Spacious, classy and cool. Best part? Nobody was talking over the music — we were all too into it.
Ryan is a fucking genius, plain and simple. He played an electric set that pretty much ruled, then melted my mind (and soul) with an acoustic performance featuring Tyler Bowles on bass. So much goddamn talent on display.
Burlington is incredibly lucky to have him.
I would've taken some pictures to post here, but I was so mesmerized by the sounds that I completely forgot!
Buy his new CD, OK? I'm telling you, it's beautiful.
