That is my band’s very simple motto before we start a gig. If you ever see us, you will likely hear us saying that from the stage, as sort of a motivator to play well. I can tell you from experience, it’s surprisingly effective. Because no one wants to play it like an a&*#$le, least of all me.
Anyway, my band Firenza is playing the Shore Fire Comes Alive Show at Union Hall. Unfortunately the only video we have is of us doing cover songs. I love including cover songs in a set, especially when the song is in your top five all-time favorite songs ever. The video below is of us covering “Waterloo Sunset.” A performance that a friend in the audience enthused was exactly how he imagined The Who would cover a Kinks song. Which was precisely our point. There’s a bit of us going into a Guided By Voices song at the very end of the video.
