A quick plug for The Clarks (loud music upon entering site) who I just saw (sans drummer Dave Minarik) at World Cafe Live with some good friends. Guitarist Rob James, bassist Greg Joseph, and singer Scott Blasey played acoustic covers ranging from The Violent Fems to Jim Croce to Bruce—and a shockingly good version of Prince’s “Kiss” complete with falsetto)—as well as some of their own stuff. New and old, from what I am told.
It’s been a long time since I’ve been to a live show and it was great to see a band having a ball up there on the stage. Food and drinks were good, too. Not much of a beer connoisseur, I tried the two most bizarre sounding beers on the menu, both of which turned out to be local brews: Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA and Troegs Nut Brown Ale. I recommend both, the brown ale a little more.
